Sunday Morning Meditation IN PERSON

Sundays, 10:00 to noon | Open to all | Free | In Person Sitting

 The Albuquerque Shambhala Centre offers public Sunday meditation. We welcome you to drop in whenever you can.  The Centre is operating under reduced capacity due to Covid restrictions, having shut our physical space early during the pandemic.  The Albuquerque Zen Center (AZC) has graciously offered us their space for our Sunday Morning Meditation practice. AZC is located at 2300 Garfield Ave. SE, a few blocks from the UNM campus.

Join us. Periods of sitting alternate with brief periods of walking. Sessions start and end with chants. We provide meditation cushions.

We will be following the requirements of AZC.  Everyone must be fully vaccinated unless a medical condition prevents you from being vaccinated.  In addition, face masks are required of everyone in the Zendo (meditation hall) but optional outside.  Please practice social distancing and sit only where there are available cushions or chairs.

The meeting room and Library are closed. 

(Please bring your vaccination card)

If you have questions or would like to arrange free meditation instruction, please email us at: Meditation instructor coordinator or please call 505-570-4700.
