Welcome to the Longmont Shambhala Meditation Group Members Page
This page is for those who wish to become more active in the Longmont community.
Learn about the evolution of meditation in the Shambhala tradition in Longmont at this link.
We Shambhalians who live in Longmont identify strongly with the burgeoning community here and think of the Longmont Group as our home.
Well, technically since we do not have membership dues, it is hard to think of us as "members," however, the Longmont Group is growing by leaps and bounds.
You can designate Longmont as your home group with Shambhala International.
These are some of the talks that were given by senior teachers on Thursday nights at our regular gathering at The Meditation Place.
