“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.


An Evening of Contemplation: Contentment in Everyday Life

Wednesday, July 8     7 – 8:30pm With Steven Shippee, Director of Practice & Education

Please join us in this evening of community contemplation practice on the theme of “Contentment.” This special practice event is meant as a support and an invitation for all past CIEL participants to continue to contemplate this theme and deepen the practice introduced during the course. During the evening, the contemplation will be reviewed first, then we will practice together.

No registration required. Donations appreciated.
