In a bustling metropolis, which can often feel overwhelming to the mind and body, the Westside Shambhala Meditation Center is a wonderful oasis of peace and goodness. Not only does the center offer excellent, free meditation instruction (donations accepted) on a regular basis, it also hold talks, classes, programs and events

I found Shambhala after reading Pema Chodron’s “When Things Fall Apart.” Her primary teacher was Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the founder of Shambhala. Everything about the Shambhala Westside Community, from the open-sit meditations on Sunday mornings to the Dharma talks on Wednesday nights to the many courses they offer on artwork, flower arranging, yoga and Buddhist thought are imbued with Trungpa Rinpoche’s compassionate and inspirational teachings.

Every Sunday morning that I’m able to meditate here is a gift to myself and those in my life. There may be other places to meditate and learn, but Shambhala embodies one of the fundamental sets of Tibetan Buddhist teachings brought to the West. I highly recommend attending any of the events,
