Learn to Meditate

Shambhala NYC offers meditation instruction for beginners, or anyone looking to refresh their understanding of mindfulness meditation practice.

Led by a qualified Shambhala Meditation Instructor, this half-hour session presents the view and technique of mindfulness-awareness meditation. Each class features a guided practice session – full instructions on working with posture, breath, and thoughts, as well as an opportunity to ask questions. Through synchronizing mind and body in meditation, we create the foundation for a sane and balanced life.

This class also includes an introduction to Shambhala and a brief tour of our space.
