Thursday Evening Meditation, Tea, and Talk

Hosted by Seattle's Shambhala Meditation Group

Public group


Join us for meditation and a dharma talk. We also offer introductory instruction.


•6:30 – 7:30 pm: Shamatha (calm abiding) meditation, often with a period of walking meditation in the middle.

•6:30 pm: Free meditation instruction is provided in a separate room.

•7:30 – 8:15 pm: Open House talk. Topics vary, but these talks often provide a basic introduction to the path of meditation and the Shambhala Buddhist lineage. Talks are free and open to the public.

Free meditation instruction is offered for new visitors, every Thursday at 6:30 pm. It begins in a separate room so you can ask questions before joining the main group.

On the 3rd Thursday of each month (also at 6:30 pm), in addition to offering beginning meditation instruction, follow-up meditation instruction is available. If you have received instruction, and have questions about the technique or meditation in general, this is an opportunity to receive additional practice information from a trained meditation instructor.

Dress is casual (nothing special)! We have plenty of different types of cushions for different bodies, or you can also sit in a chair. Over time you’ll discover what works best for you.

The program is free (though donations would be gladly accepted) and well attended by a core group of people who don't RSVP on Meetup.
