Shambhala is an international community of practitioners of meditation in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition. Shambhala Brussels offers meditation instruction every week, Shambhala Buddhist teachings, and ongoing opportunities for our community to socialize together.

Exceptionally, the meditation session of next Thursday 12 October is cancelled

Learn to meditate – Every Thursday

Every Thursday, from 19:15 to 21:00 we offer meditation instruction, group practice and a short reading followed by group discussion. We ask for a contribution of 5€ to help us cover the costs of the space, however, if you have limited financial means you can pay what is affordable for you.

Please also join us for “Third Thursdays After Sitting Socializing”. The third Thursday of every month, after the meditation session, we will go out to a local bar for a drink or two and to socialize. Join us for a bit of conversation and some fun!

Where? Galerie Ravenstein 28, 1000 Brussels

People of all levels of experience attend on a regular basis and first-time meditators are welcome.


Coming up: ‘Contentment in Everyday Life’

5 week Evening Course 

Wednesdays from 19:00 to 21:00 on 8, 22, 29 November and 6, 13 December

By letting go of the struggle to be something “better,” we can make space for our inherently intelligent, compassionate, and strong nature to flourish. The Contentment in Everyday Life course is an experiential training in mindfulness and appreciation. By opening to our natural state of being, we begin to feel a simple worthiness (or contentment) that makes life less forced and more enjoyable.
