About Wellington Shambhala Meditation Centre

We are part of Shambhala International, a worldwide community of meditation centres founded by meditation master Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

His teachings bring together three streams of wisdom:

  • the Kagyu and Nyingma teachings of Tibetan Buddhism
  • the wisdom teachings of Shambhala

It is the Shambhala view that every human being has a fundamental nature of goodness, warmth and intelligence.
