Dear members and friends:

The Atlanta Shambhala Center is now CLOSED for in-person Open House.

We will offer Open House meditation on Sunday mornings online for the rest of September. The schedule will continue to be 10-11 AM with discussion from 11-11:30 AM. Meditation instruction will be available online at 10 AM.

Tuesday evening Open House will continue online with sitting from 7-7:30 PM and discussion from 7:30-8 PM. Access the Tuesday 7 PM sitting by clicking https://us02web.zoom.us/j/390090306?pwd=eGFmN0VSRjM5ektJSzJpUHowL24wdz09. Meeting ID: 390 090 306  Passcode: 831138.

Wednesday evening practice is discontinued until further notice.

We look forward to resuming practice in person the moment it is deemed safe for all of us to do so. We will be keeping a close eye on the numbers in our state and our area. In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you on Zoom!

Our plan is to soon be able to provide a seamless combination of in-person and online experience so that we can join together in-person and from wherever you are for sitting practice as well as classes and events. We are making good progress on finding the right technology to make this happen. Please stay tuned.

Please email [email protected] with questions or concerns as we work through this very exciting transition.
