Level I will open our eyes, hearts and minds to our own basic goodness and the sacredness of life.

This program is the first of a series of weekend seminars that provides an open and friendly environment to discover knowing how to live with a clear mind, a gentle heart and a sense of humor through the practice of meditation. The weekends include an introduction to sitting meditation practice, talks by a director, individual meetings with a meditation instructor, and group discussion. We welcome people of all religious traditions as well as those who do not follow a particular spiritual path.

NOTE: This program is usually offered as a full weekend.  At this time, SMCLA is delighted to offer this special Level I as a one-and-a-half day program for those who have not been able to participate in a full weekend program. A continental breakfast on both days and lunch on Saturday are included. Please arrive in time to register at 8:30 a.m.

The Shambhala Center of Los Angeles 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 of Los Angeles. Thank you for your kindness!

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.
