Social Meditation is a group practice that facilitates creating a culture of nowness, by bringing the wisdom of meditation into the vibrancy of social interaction. It is often practiced weekly at some Shambhala Meditation Centres as an ongoing form of leadership development and community building. Together we create a safe space to be our authentic selves.

This practice is open to everyone of all ages. We will practice sitting meditation and social meditation with talks and experiential exercises.
