The Shambhala Meditation Center of Columbus presents a range of disciplines that share one core ethic: wakeful intelligence. Our community includes people of all ages and walks of life who are exploring their world as individuals, together. SMCC offers public meditation and a core curriculum of Shambhala and Buddhist teachings, as well as advanced contemplative practices to help us awaken our true nature and infuse our everyday activities with wisdom, compassion, and a sense of humor.
We provide an open meditation space, instruction in meditation for beginners and a series of evening and weekend programs called Way of Shambhala that provide the tools to discover compassion and wisdom in your everyday life.
There is open sitting meditation at SMCC every Wednesday 7pm-8pm, Saturday 10:00am-11:30am and Sunday 10am-12pm for beginners and experienced practitioners. Meditation instruction with a qualified instructor is offered at these times at no charge.
You are warmly invited to join us.
