Sit with It – Join us to Develop or Reboot Your Meditation Practice

“The way to relax, or rest the mind in nowness, is through the practice of meditation, In meditation you take an unbiased approach. You let things be as they are, without judgment, and in that way you yourself learn to be.”

~ Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Sit With It

Does it feel like your life is speeding up again now that we are moving back out into the world? With kids back in school and people commuting into the workplace, traffic here in LA feels like it’s returned to pre-pandemic levels. Next week is Thanksgiving and many of us have plans to celebrate the holiday with family and/or friends at in-person gatherings. The fact that COVID-19 is still very much with us may add an additional level of anxiety to the occasion.

As our lives speed up again and the holidays approach, there’s no better time than now to develop or reboot a regular meditation practice. Meditation is a way to stop where you are in the midst of whatever is going on in your life, and just be–not trying to manipulate or change anything or to solve problems or figure anything out.

Just sit with it. Observing. Noticing. Allowing everything to be as it is even if just for a few minutes.

Los Angeles Shambhala offers two opportunities every week for online group meditation that can support your individual practice, on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. Every session offers guided meditation instruction, practice sessions and time for small group reflections. Beginners and experienced meditators are welcome. We also now meet in-person for Community Meditation at the Neighborhood Church once per month. Meditation instruction will be available and there are indoor and outdoor spaces for sitting and walking meditation.

And please also take a look at our other regular offerings open to all.
