Practice on First and Second Sundays

San Francisco Shambhala offers a Zoom-based meditation program on the first and second Sundays of each month.

This public meditation session welcomes newcomers, beginners and people who have an established sitting meditation practice. Whether your motivation is to simply relax, or to explore this profound path, sitting meditation cultivates sanity and fundamental well-being. We practice and teach mindfulness-awareness meditation as it has been passed from teacher to student for 2500 years.

Meditation instruction is given at 10 AM promptly.

Meditation also begins at 10 AM in the meditation hall. Please arrive at least 5 minutes early, as no one will be admitted late during chants. This hour is a combination of silent sitting and walking meditation practice. 

Facilitated Discussion
The first 2 Sundays of the month we have discussion facilitated by a senior student. It begins at 11 AM  and runs for approximately 45 minutes. If you do not wish to meditate prior to this you may arrive at 11 to join the discussion. 

We look forward to seeing you!
