This all-day retreat will provide an opportunity to experience mindfulness, to relax with ourselves, and refresh our sense of peace, wellbeing, goodness, and sanity. This retreat is accessible for any person who identifies  themselves as a person of color. You do not need to have previous meditation experience.

Guided meditation instruction will be given at the very beginning of the day and private meditation interviews will be available upon request throughout the day. Silence (functional talking when necessary) will be observed throughout the day except during discussion periods. We will have a Dharma talk.

To create and maintain a container that provides maximum benefit to all, retreat participants are expected to commit to stay the whole day.  A simple lunch will be provided with coffee, tea, and snacks available throughout the day.

8:30    Check-in and coffee/tea

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.
