Shambhala Mountain Center is a mountain valley retreat located on 600 acres in northern Colorado. Since 1971 the Center has offered hundreds of programs on Buddhist meditation, yoga and other contemplative disciplines. Tamed by over thirty years of use as a contemplative retreat, Shambhala Mountain Center is a place where one of the basic truths of Buddhism—that people can be profoundly open to the wisdom of the present moment—is always readily available.
Since 2001, we have pursued an ambitious campus development plan to upgrade our lodging and conference facilities. As a result our capacity to host programs has grown dramatically. The completion of the Sacred Studies Hall and Shotoku Children's Center, the purchase and renovation of Red Feather Conference Center, and the construction of the Shambhala and Rigden Lodges (new guest housing) have added over 35,000 square feet of program, dining and housing space to the facility. Shambhala Mountain Center is now able to host over 500 people during the summer season and 150 in the winter.
