Shambhala South Africa is a registered non-profit group dedicated to building a community that can help our world by cultivating our own sanity. We offer both Buddhist teachings and the secular meditation training path known as Shambhala Training. Shambhala South Africa is affiliated with Shambhala International, a global network of study and practice centres.
It is the Shambhala view that every human being has a fundamental nature of goodness, warmth and intelligence. This nature can be cultivated through meditation, following ancient principles common to many wisdom traditions the world over. Our innately brilliant nature can be further developed in daily life, so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.

Shambhala South Africa is dedicated to making these teachings and practices available in South Africa. We have several dharma study groups, where you can learn to meditate or find a community to support your existing practice and study. We also offer the Way of Shambhala curriculum and Shambhala Training, a secular meditation training programme presented in a series of five progressive weekend workshops. Shambhala Training is offered in Cape Town, Johannesburg and KwaZulu/Natal.
