Our Mission

Marpa House is an urban residence based on the vision of enlightened society as
transmitted by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and the Shambhala lineage. It offers an environment in which individuals can join in a community based on the practice of meditation and the Shambhala principle of basic goodness.

Through living together, supporting each other, and hosting others, the Marpa House community creates a training ground of social transformation, uplifted household and group practice. This path fosters a dignified society that supports individuals’ diverse paths and aspirations, and inspires others to explore the path of community living.
