Who We Are:

The Los Angeles Shambhala White Awake Study Group is a group for anyone who identifies as white who wants to learn more about the realities of racism and the unintended impacts of white privilege so that they can consciously contribute to racial justice rather than unconsciously perpetuate patterns of racism. We gather with other white people to create a space of learning without causing more harm. We hold the Shambhala values of basic goodness, bravery, gentleness, kindness, and understanding at the center of our study.

What We Do:

Over the course of this year on the 3rd Sunday of the month, we will be meeting to study the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller, How to Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi.  

Drop-ins are welcome whether or not you’re current with the reading.

Each meeting we will take time for a short meditation period, a brief review of Group Norms and may include personal writing practice and small and large group discussion. Occasionally a meeting will deviate from the book altogether to focus on a relevant article, film or podcast.

For questions please email: [email protected]

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.
