Public Sitting

Please note we will not be holding Public Sitting on Sunday, August 20th or Thursday, August 24th, due to the Urban Retreat.

The Shambhala Meditation Center of New York offers drop-in, by-donation public meditation sessions. The silent, sitting meditation is typically hosted by a timekeeper and is interspersed with brief periods of walking meditation.

Public Sitting is offered on the following days:

Thursdays, 6:00 – 7:00PM
Fridays, 6:00 – 7:00PM
Sundays, 9:00 – 11:45AM

Check the Monthly Calendar to confirm a particular date.

By donation. No registration necessary. Come for all or for part of the sitting period.

New to meditation? The Learn to Meditate sessions offered at the Center can serve as an excellent introduction to the public sit.
