Chapman University Shambhala Sitting Meditation Group
We are on break for the summer as Fish Interfaith Center does not have extended evening hours in the summer. We will resume weekly sitting sessions in September, and look forward to seeing you again then!
Join us for free meditation instruction and group sitting meditation on the Chapman University Campus! We practice sitting meditation together most Monday evenings from 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm at the Fish Interfaith Center in Wilkinson Founders Chapel (the small chapel room adjacent to Wallace All Faiths Chapel). First timers and beginners are welcome!
We will begin with meditation instruction for the first half hour, and then practice meditation together, which will be followed by a brief reading, and then a discussion group and socializing for those who wish to stay.
IMPORTANT: Please check this page regularly to confirm there will be sitting meditation, as the space is not available every Monday.
Please Join us for meditation in Carpinteria:
Monday’s, 6-6:45pm, at the Carpinteria Salt Marsh amphitheatre, entrance from Ash and Sandyland. Silent meditation in the Marsh with others is magical!
Wednesdays, 10:30-12:15 at the Carpinteria Woman’s Club, 1059 Vallecito Road. We begin each session with a brief standing yoga, have a reading or a brief short talk, then alternate sitting and walking-mindfulness-awareness meditation, concluding with a short discussion and snacks.
