Families and Children

Family Groups are not gathering in person until further notice. If you would like to be notified about when we will be starting again please contact us at [email protected]. Thank you!


Shambhala Families and Children flourishes at the Shambhala Center in Eagle Rock

Our family activities sprout from the Shambhala view that all of us have basic goodness.  When this view permeates the family experience, genuine confidence, kindness and compassion can naturally grow.

For years our Family Groups program occurred each month on a drop-in basis.  Now, to build community among families, we offer 2 semesters each year for families who apply, are accepted and pay ahead for a 5-month commitment.  Our Family Council members volunteer as leaders in our Family Groups program in the spring and fall.

During this Spring Semester the “Present Parenting” group will gather while children’s activity groups are happening (ages 2 thru 16), as we’ve done before. Tuition is $130 per family for 5 sessions on the 3rd Sunday of each month, February 16 thru June 21. This amount helps pay the bills for our center which offers all its spaces so that families can meet monthly. If you need reduced tuition, we can work that out. We are full at the moment, but sometimes family plans can change.

Families and Children activities happen at our Shambhala Meditation Center in Eagle Rock at 963 Colorado Blvd. In addition to the semester Family Groups program, there will be other activities throughout the year when families can gather for a camping trip or a picnic, and more.

If you are interested in applying for Family Groups, or you just want to be on our Families email list, please contact SMCLA Families & Children coordinator Laura Burnham at [email protected]
