Driving up to this spiritual center is peaceful and centering in itself, but when the white temple is spied it takes your breath away! The grounds have hundreds of tents available to reside in while studying, making a retreat or what have you. The guide...More
I attended a retreat and renew weekend session at Shambhala. I chose to stay in the private room with its own bathroom. It was in one of the lodges. The room itself is very basic. I was disappointed to find that there is wifi, as...More
A great place for learning about meditation and basic human goodness. The mountain air, the scenery, the stars, the deafening silence, the abscence of cell signal, all these things contributed to a peaceful experience.
Accommodation: I shared a room with a fellow participant. The room...More
My family has been going to the Great Stupa for years for hiking and mediation. The Stupa is awesome, breathtaking scenery and some nice little hikes. The problem is that it is a 2.5ish hour drive from Denver so that makes for a long drive...More

I stayed at Shambhala for 2 nights in August. The food is served buffet-style in the food tent. You can dine in the tent or there are benches outside, and it's spacious inside and out. There is one meat or fish entree served at dinner, and when I was there it was roast chicken and maybe salmon or tilapia, plus a vegetarian option like tofu. At least two vegetables, plus a starch like rice or mashed potatoes, and salad or soup, too. I don't remember what was served at lunch, maybe something like tacos or stir fry, and maybe salad or soup. Breakfast is eggs, maybe bacon or sausage, cereal, bread for toast, and fruit. They have good coffee and it seems to be available all day, as well as tea. I was impressed with the variety of food, though dessert is rare.
