If you have been meaning to meditate more this year--or to learn to meditate--it's not too late! Everyone is welcome to join in this mini-retreat as we transition from the old year to the new. Come for the entire evening -- or for any part of it -- to meditate and celebrate with old friends and to make new ones.

Meditation instruction is available at all times during the evening.

No prior meditation experience required.

We will show a video of a talk given by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche in which he discusses meditation practice.

4-5pm – Meditation Session*

When registering, please indicate in the comment box if you will take part in the community dinner and if you would like to bring something. Contributions toward the meal are welcome but not necessary.

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.
