Open Public Sitting

The open sitting meditation is for beginners and experienced practitioners. Meditation instruction with a qualified instructor is offered at these times at no charge.

Heart of Recovery

This meditation and discussion group brings together Shambhala Buddhist meditation practice with the Twelve Steps recovery programs. Meetings are anonymous and confidential and explore the relationship of addictions and recovery to our personal paths as warriors, bodhisattvas, and meditation practitioners. This is open to all who are Buddhist practitioners (from any tradition) and 12 Step practitioners (from any program), or individuals interested in exploring the relationship of meditation to recovery from addiction and addictive behaviors.
