As an offshoot of the Shambhala Meditation Center of Chicago, the Oak Park Monday Night Meditation Group is open to all who want to learn and practice meditation together. Sessions include meditation instruction, practice, reading and discussion. Sessions are free but donations are always welcome. Meditation practice provides a warm, genuine basis for realizing the full potential of our inherent wisdom. Through the practice, we learn to touch in with this wisdom, allowing us to live our lives with a mind that is more present and fully engaged. Waking up to our own inherent goodness has a natural impact on our family members, friends, co-workers, and our world at large.
