The Shambala Center is located in Algarve near the west coast of Portugal. The land is hidden away in a beautiful valley filled with life and lush nature ans surrounded by mountains. Here we practice Peaceful communication, Zen-Buddhism, Chi Gong, Tantra and Shamanistic Ceremonies. All deeply rooted in a intuitive tradition without dogma or religion that we call the Shambala vision. It is possible to come here for a private retreat and deepen yourself in your own practice or join our ongoing training. It is a nature paradise with simple huts and tents, compost toilets, clear water from the mountain springs.
The legends tell a story of an ancient enlightened society. The Buddha went to Shambala and taught the highest tantra to the king who then made this knowledge available to everyone. But as the world around Shambala was falling into wars and conflict the city of Shambala disappeared into the mist. The legends tells us that when needed the most Shambala will re-emerge and restore the balance one again.
The Shambala Center in Portugal is a reflection of that mystical kingdom and aims to in a smal but important way help our society to transform itself by sharing intuitive knowladge about energy work and natural organization. Mikael Ananda Cromsjö is the founder and main leader of the activities in Shambala. He has been practicing intuitive meditation since a child.
