Weekly Schedule

Please note:

The Leadership Council of Shambhala Meditation Centers of Los Angeles has decided to extend the closure of our centers until further notice due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please check our monthly calendar for updated information on scheduled programs and activities. We ask for your patience and support as we work towards setting up online options for both practice and study. We will announce these options on la.shambhala.org as they become available.


Shambhala Meditation Center of Los Angeles offers a rich array of ongoing meditation programs at our locations in Eagle Rock, Mar Vista (Westside) and Orange County. No prior meditation experience required to attend. All our programs are by donation  ($10 – $15 suggested donation unless stated. No one turned away for lack of funds!).
