  • Went here to review this place for a religious study college class... took the whole family and we all loved it! It's beautiful, peaceful and people there are more then willing to show you around. We ...  read more »
  • I stayed at Shambhala two nights on their Getaway summer promotion, which does not have structured yoga or meditation classes. I brought along art supplies, books, and journals to pass the time, but f...  read more »

  • Great meditative place to visit! Beautiful scenic views at The Great Stupa of Dharmakaya with informative video played on loop at a cabin nearby (Stupa Visitors' Center) detailing it's creation. Either hike up to the Stupa from below or drive up a dirt road for handicap access. Be mindful that road conditions can be challenging during wet and wintering seasons. Visit the Shambhala Mountain Gift Store for a great assortment of reading material and much more. I go here annually with my family and enjoy the hike, views and gift store.
  • It is amazing that this place is in colorado , i felt like i was in another country, it was absolutely beautiful & peaceful , deer were walking up to me, I plan on going alot!!
  • Beautiful place with an energy of compassion, peace, serenity, tranquility, and love filling the air. Must visit for any truth seeker.
  • I needed to cancel a reservation and they promised my (lots) of money back but then were super flaky and did not return my phone calls. They wanted me to leave my credit card info on a voicemail. Really? Still waiting on my $1100 back months later. Gorgeous place but not up to their own ethical standards.
  • I am really disappointed by these folks. I signed myself and my wife up for a retreat a few weeks before our home was flooded and made inaccessible by the Boulder County Flooding on 9/12/13. Our home is smack dab in the middle of a presidentially declared FEMA disaster. We ended up being okay and were evacuated by helicopter on 9/16/13. The roads to our home were demolished. We left behind everything that did not fit in a single back pack each. Our vehicles are still sitting in our driveway unable to ford the washed out road. I remembered that we were signed up for a retreat and called to explain our situation. I ended up talking to several people who assured me that the Shambhala Mountain Center was "in the same boat" as we were... Really? I wondered how their phone worked and how they could conduct a retreat. All of our food spoiled after the power went out. Is this a brown bag retreat? Our house is uninhabitable. I guess this is an opportunity for practice. Still I cannot imagine treating someone the way we were treated. Not only did we never get a straight answer we still have not gotten a refund, a call back or even an answer to our very plain question... Could we have a refund. I was given several refunds after the flooding... Even my roofer... Not so with Shambhala Mountain Center. I do not appreciate being treated this way and I am very surprised indeed. I hope the center needs our money worse than we do. I doubt it is possible. It is actually funny now, a "buddhist" retreat center adding to our sadness and stress level in the least responsible and totally un-compassionate way. I guess it is a joke. It sure looks that way from where I sit.
