“True happiness is always available to us, but first we have to create the environment for it to flourish.”
— Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche 

The Shambhala Meditation Center of Milwaukee provides opportunities to learn how to meditate and live more mindfully. We also offer classes and programs for those who want to deepen their practice and study on the Shambhala Buddhist path. Finally, we’re here as a gathering place for all who aspire to a good human society; so that together we can make the vision of a sane and kind world … Enlightened Society, a reality in Milwaukee and beyond.
