Wilderness, Discovery & Nowness program

Participants in the Wilderness, Discovery & Nowness program

Spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation.

The Shambhala Meditation Center of St Johnsbury is located in the heart of downtown St. Johnsbury, serving a population of meditators who live in northern Vermont and New Hampshire. We invite you to explore our Center and our programs designed to help people of all traditions discover their inherent sanity, gentleness and goodness. We offer public meditation and Shambhala Buddhist teachings, as well as connections to advanced contemplative practices at other Shambhala Centers.

“The sitting practice of meditation is regarded as one of the most profound and fundamental disciplines you could ever achieve. By doing this practice, you find that you become less crazy.  You begin to develop more humor, more relaxation, and ultimately, more mindfulness.”
