the practice of meditation.
Shambhala Vision is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society. Located in the vibrant Cleveland Park neighborhood, the Shambhala Meditation Center of Washington DC is part of a global community of meditation centers which aspire to awaken kindness, goodness and wisdom within society, through a variety of classes, retreats, community events, and free of charge public meditation sessions.
Take our Learn to Meditate workshop, offered the second Wednesday of each month, or if you’re ready to jump in, come to the Center at 7pm on any Thursday. You can get a short introduction to meditation, sit with the group, then stay for the free talk and discussion group. Meditation instruction is also offered on other days, and during other programs.
