    Curious about how to meditate? Need a refresher? Drop in and meet one of the Shambhala Center’s meditation instructors for an evening of meditation instruction, practice and Q&A. All are welcome!

    Pema Chödrön Tape Night

    Good nourishment! This is what Acharya Pema Chödrön calls the practice and study of meditation. We are delighted to invite you to a monthly feast of practice and study with the teachings of Pema Chödrön. Each evening will feature a short guided meditation, a video teaching of Pema’s, and a discussion period. Beginners are encouraged to attend.

    BONUS Thursdays

    Every so often, we encounter a month with five Thursday evenings. We will use those extra evenings to offer talks on topics which are relevant to both beginners and experienced practioners. All are welcome!

    SMCLA Generosity Policy

    The Shambhala Center remains open because of the ongoing generosity of our community. One of the cornerstones of our policy is that no one be turned away for lack of funds. If you can’t afford a program, please call our office (323-255-5472) to register based on what you can afford. At the same time, the Center relies on program revenue to cover costs. For those who are able to pay more than the program price, your generosity in paying the Patron Price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price, and provides additional support to the Shambhala Center. Thank you for your kindness!

    Program Cancellation Policy

    If you cancel more than 7 days prior to your class (and have already paid), you will receive a full refund less a processing fee of $15. If you cancel between 1 to 7 days prior to arrival, we will credit your payment towards another program at Shambhala Los Angeles to be used within 1 year. No refunds or credits are issued for cancellations received fewer than 24 hours prior to arrival.
