Get Started MeditatingGet Started Meditating with Our Weekly Offerings—All Are Welcome!

Please join our community in any of these weekly gatherings. Beginners and seasoned practitioners come together for group sitting, meditation instruction, engaging lectures and discussions with one of our teachers. Each of these programs is an excellent way for first-time visitors to get a glimpse of Shambhala, and learn how to work with your mind through meditation. Our teachers give talks and lead discussion on basic human emotions and how to relate meditation experience to your daily life.

There is no charge for our weekly introductions, however donations are warmly accepted. All of the programs listed below are open to the public.
