Shambhala Meditation Center of Los Angeles Sit-a-thon

Goal $1,000.00



On Sunday, January 22nd, Shambhala Los Angeles is hosting a Sitting for Society; think of it like a walk-a-thon, but with meditation. Community members will gather at our center in Eagle Rock to meditate together for a full day. Your donation means so much to help make this special community possible, please consider supporting. 

Shambhala is a global community of meditators inspired by the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature, our innate wisdom, can be developed so that it benefits our own lives and helps meet the many challenges facing the world.

We welcome people from all walks of life, faiths, and backgrounds. They come together to practice meditation, gather, and celebrate in order to develop a global culture that cultivates dignity and sanity in an increasingly chaotic and stressful world.

Shambhala is a not-for-profit organization funded by donations from its members and supporters, and by program fees. This year, Shambhala Los Angeles has two top priorities:  First, there is an overwhelming need for new larger space in Orange County to accommodate the ever growing demand for programs there. Our current one-room temporary location is bursting at the seams! The local sangha is incredibly energized and dedicated to growing our presence in a part of the city that has a brilliant potential to embrace mindfulness.

Our next priority is to further strengthen our core infrastructure. Specifically, we are seeking to offer more support for members who assume critical leadership roles in the form of small stipends that will help us attract and keep passionate and inspiring leadership. 

 Thank you!
