Dear members and friends:

We have closed the Atlanta Shambhala Center until public health officials deem it safe to reopen. 

We are now offering an online meditation open house on Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings. On Sundays, we will offer a half-hour meditation and a half-hour discussion via Zoom from 10 – 11 AM. We will offer the same format on Tuesday evenings from 7 – 8 PM. We have umdzes and discussion leaders scheduled to facilitate the gatherings. A half-hour of “open conversation” will follow each open house. Please join us!

Access the Sunday 10 AM session by clicking
