This is an established meditation group running for more than 6 years opening up to new members using meetup.com. We are an small group that is non-dogmatic, non-sectarian and primarily focused on meditation practice and sutta study. The group meets every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at a private residence in Los Feliz near Griffith Park. Meetings consist of a 20 minute silent meditation followed by a 40 minute dharma/sutta talk led by Sunim Hye Wol, followed by another 20 minute sit. Afterwards we have tea and conversation.
Please take a look at the groups pages for more information.
