Learn to Meditate


September 16 / 7:00 PM - September 16 / 8:30 PM

Introduction to meditation


"In peaceful abiding meditation, we ground our mind in the present moment. We place our mind on the breath and practice keeping it there. We notice when thoughts and emotions distract us, and train in continually returning our mind to the breath. This is how we shift our allegiance from the bewildered mind that causes its own suffering to the mind that is stable, clear, and strong. We proclaim our desire to discover this mind of stability, clarity, and strength by learning to rest in our own peace"


Sakyong Mipham:


Our weekly Learn to Meditate class is a gentle introduction to the practice of shamatha, or peaceful abiding meditation. It includes meditation instruction, short periods of sitting and walking meditation, discussion, with a reception to follow. It is an excellent introduction to both the basics of peaceful abiding meditation, as well as the Baltimore Shambhala Meditation Center.


Open to the public.
