Monthly Ongoing Meditation Groups (now online)

Contemplative Creativity Lab

Exploring creative processes that arise from meditative space

We are a group of art and meditation practitioners and teachers who want to play with the Dharma Art teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and to share it with others. To let go of concepts about “Art” and collaborate. Not primarily to make stuff, but to engage each other and develop a ground of mutual trust born of curiosity, willingness to be a fool, and trust in the process of coming back to the present moment. To see where it goes. Learn more

 

Families and Children

Shambhala offers support for families to be able to meditate together including free child care first Sunday of the month. In addition, we offer Family Groups 2 semesters each year for families who apply, are accepted and pay ahead for a 5-month commitment. Our Family Council members volunteer as leaders in our Family Groups program in the spring and fall. Learn more

 

The Healing Circle

Based on the “Unconditional Healing” teachings offered at Shambhala Los Angeles in the fall of 2011 by Jeff Rubin, we will explore the real meaning of “healing,” as opposed to “cure.” We will look at how the uncomfortable, sometimes painful issues in our lives can be our gifts on the path of awakening to a life that is actually rich and fulfilling.

White Awake Study Group

Currently Meeting Online

The Los Angeles Shambhala White Awake Study Group is a group for anyone who identifies as white who wants to learn more about the realities of racism and the unintended impacts of white privilege so that they can consciously contribute to racial justice rather than unconsciously perpetuate patterns of racism. We gather with other white people to create a space of learning without causing more harm. We hold the Shambhala values of basic goodness, bravery, gentleness, kindness, and understanding at the center of our study. Learn more
