Special updated Information:  Shamatha practices will be cancelled that fall on major holidays, e.g. Thanksgiving and Christmas days. 

Anyone is welcome to attend the Monday shamatha meditation sessions, as they are intended as a drop-in format. No prior meditation experience is necessary, as instruction is offered by those leading.

While the sponsoring organization -Vajra North- is based in Tibetan Buddhism, the Monday shamatha practice is more general in nature, and is fundamentally common across most Buddhist traditions. It’s a service to allow interested people the opportunity to learn about meditation and practice with the support of others, but without expected commitment to a particular group or tradition.

No fee is charged; though offering the practice does rely upon participants’ donations to cover the cost of renting the facility, purchasing cushions and other incidentals, and sponsoring visiting teachers from time to time. Those leading the shamatha sessions are volunteers — meditators with some experience, though they consider themselves to be facilitators, rather than teachers.
