About Weekly Dharma Gathering on Thursday Evenings

Meditation is less about achieving a peaceful state of mind than experiencing life directly. Washing dishes in the sink can be meditation as much as sitting in a monastery reciting mantras. These evenings are about integrating a spiritual life with a daily life, and having a sense of humor along the way.

This Introduction to Meditation hour is an opportunity to meditate in a supportive group setting, to learn about how to apply the principles of meditation to everyday life, and to meet and mingle with those interested in mindfulness.

Features meditation instructions with a short period of meditation followed by a talk and light refreshments.

No reservations necessary.  $15 suggested donation (no one turned away for lack of funds).

All are welcome — newcomers as well as seasoned meditators.

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!
