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.
