Shambhala Publications is dedicated to creating books, audio, and immersive courses aimed at improving lives—in ways big and small—in the hope of contributing to the development of a thoughtful, kindhearted, and contemplative society.

“Enlightened society has to be real and good, honest and genuine.”

— our first author, Chögyam Trungpa

We hold these words as a guiding principle and try to reflect its sentiment in each and everything we make and do, from publishing timeless spiritual classics and cultural treasures to contemporary explorations of what it is to live a meaningful and honest life that benefits the people and world around us.

As in our earliest days, we continue to be very selective about what we publish. Authenticity and integrity are paramount. And we aim for each of our books and programs to shine through with genuine personal value.

We offer numerous titles on meditation and a wide range of spiritual traditions, from Buddhism and Taoism to contemplative traditions within Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and Sufism.

Sometimes the focus is more physical, with our books on health, wellness, yoga, and martial arts. And often it is simply about day-to-day happiness, with books on psychology, emotional well-being, and mindfulness.
