Getting Started with Meditation?

The Birmingham Shambhala Center offers several supports for helping someone begin or reestablish a meditation practice.

A good and simple way to begin is to attend any of our weeknight sitting meditation sessions.  Every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday night, there is open meditation from 7 – 8 pm, and there is always an instructor available to provide orientation to the Center and initial meditation instruction.

To deepen either a beginning or an established meditation practice, we offer a three-hour class, “Learn to Meditate” from 9 to noon on a Saturday morning every other month.  This includes more detailed meditation instruction and opportunity for practice and discussion.  Check our Calendar for times.
