Welcome to Sky Lake!!

We are pleased to announce the soft re-opening of Sky Lake’s doors with in-person Sunday sitting from 9:00am to 12 noon.  You can drop in any time during this period.  As we all continue to navigate the continued changes of physical distancing and COVID protocol, Sky Lake is still offering our daily online meditation sessions.

Retreat is part of our Shambhala tradition and we want to share this practice as much as possible.  Please join us online at 10 am and 6 pm daily.  These sessions include chants and meditation.   Why not experience a retreat format at home?  We can practice together, at a distance.
Here is the link to join the zoom room:

Sky Lake is a Shambhala contemplative center for meditation, arts and community located in the beautiful surroundings of the Hudson Valley. It is part of an international community of meditation centers founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and now led by his son and lineage holder Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Nestled in a forest of tall cedars and white pines on the northern crest of the Shawangunk Mountains.



New to meditation?  Shambhala Meditation is based on the premise that the natural state of the mind is calm and clear. It’s a practice that anyone can do. Learn to meditate and develop mindfulness awareness. Contact Susan Staples at [email protected] who will assist in arranging basic meditation instruction.
