    Shambhala Community Circle is an occasional Pop-Up event where members and friends can showcase and share, discuss and enjoy. Less a “class”, but more about making friends, supporting each other and sharing ideas. You are invited!

    For our first Circle, long-time L.A. Shambhala Center member Ed Anolin will present some of his projects and talk about what he finds beautiful about knitting and other stitch crafts and why he enjoys these practices. He’s also willing to do a little “clinic” if you have questions.

    You’re invited to bring your own stitch crafting projects to work on for the second part of the Circle – or if you’re not into that, bring a sketchbook or other project or just yourself.

    Community Circle Basic Schedule:

    10:30 Welcome / Meditation

    11:15 Community member (pre-arranged) will Show and Tell

    12:15 Break

    12:30 Working on your own project, or simply enjoying each other’s company over tea in the community room. Tea and snacks will be available.

    1:00 End.

    Ed Anolin has been a member of SMCLA since 2006. He started knitting in 2010 when he lost his favorite hat and decided to learn to make his own hats. He's also a hiker and photographer.

    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.
