• Sunday morning Tibetan meditation and reading

    Shambhala Meditation Center of Los Angeles - Eagle Rock

    The L.A. Shambhala Meditation Center (writer Pema Chodron's Buddhist tradition) now rejects father-son gurus Sakyong and Chogyam, so we're happy to sit with them. Brief Tibetan serenity (samatha) sessions alternate with a gong that signals brief mindful walking. At 11:00 we read from Gaylon Ferguson's "Natural Bravery" and have a conversation and tea. For beginners/intermediate. Wear loose cotton clothes or stretchy yoga pants for maximum comfort for sitting on soft cushions, sturdy cotton-blocks, and padded mats. Drop in for part or all anytime between 9:00-11:30 a.m. FREE/by donation. Meditation instruction available by request.

  • Open Meditation and Recovery Meeting (NoHo)

    La Maida Institute

    One hour (6-6:59 PM) self-guided Open-Meditation in the SUNRISE ROOM yoga studio for practitioners to meditate in a tranquil setting. Open to all. Come and go quietly throughout the hour (https://lamaida.org/yoga-meditation/#schedule). We continue across the hall in the SUNSET ROOM (7-8:30 PM) with a facilitated mindfulness-based recovery meeting (https://refugerecovery.org/meetings). The Institute's grounds are the perfect spot to reflect. La Maida is an oasis in the Valley, one block from the giant Lankershim/Camarillo/Vineland intersection in NoHo.
