The Atlanta Shambhala Center is now OPEN for in-person Open House on Sundays from 10-11:30 AM with discussion at 11:30 AM and tea at noon. Meditation instruction will be available from 10-11 AM for those new to the practice.

We will continue to offer Open House meditation on Sunday mornings online for the rest of July. The schedule will continue to be 10-11 AM with discussion from 11-11:30 AM. Meditation instruction will no longer be available online.

Wednesday evening group sitting is also in-person and will no longer be offered online.

Our plan is 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.
