Shambhala has several major residential contemplative centres worldwide. These centres provide the opportunity for intensive practice and study in contemplative settings, as well as for programmes of longer duration. Practice centres are usually in a rural setting and offer programmes for beginners and more advanced students, as well as opportunities for individual retreat.
It is also possible to live at a contemplative centre for an extended period of time, participating in the regular practice and study schedule of the staff. Costs vary and interested persons should contact the centre directly.
Shambhala's main European retreat centre is Dechen Chöling, which is Tibetan for "Dharma Place of Great Bliss".
