Horsetooth Reservoir Sunset by Mark Wagner

The Fort Collins Shambhala Meditation Center has had a presence in Fort Collins for over thirty years in which time it has become home to many people who are students, members, and friends. Everyone has a story of how they came to the Center just as the Center continues to unfold its own story and find its way into the larger community. We’d like to invite you to become part of its family, or just to come by for a visit!
