Welcome to Sky Lake!!

We are pleased to announce that Sky Lake’s doors are open with in-person Sunday sitting from 10:00am to 12 noon.  You can drop in any time during this period.

As we all continue to navigate the ongoing changes of physical distancing and COVID protocol, you can also join others online with an offering from one of our sangha members, at their home.  These meditation sessions occur Monday through Friday mornings from 10:00am to 11:00am.  Please join by clicking here.

We wish for everyone to stay safe and healthy!

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. Nestled in a forest of tall cedars and white pines on the northern crest of the Shawangunk Mountains.



Sky Lake is opening softly

We are offering an opportunity to practice here safely — serving you and helping sustain Sky Lake during this interesting time.
