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.

From 10 Nov 2016, we will be at our new space @ Sociale Innovatiefabriek, Galerie Ravenstein 28, 1000 Brussels.

Learn to meditate – Every Thursday 

Every Thursday, at 19:15 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.


Friday evening 22, Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September:

Shambhala Level 1 Weekend.

By settling our minds we begin to see the magic of the world beyond our habitual filters, we experience the power and fulfilment of resting in the present, and we begin to glimpse that goodness, rather than confusion is the unconditional ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings.

In addition to meditation practice, the weekend includes talks by Acharya Barbara Maertens and Faradee Rudy, one-on-one and group meditation instruction and discussions, and opportunities to socialize and make new friends with fellow participants.
