‘Awareness, peace, wisdom, compassion, and a sense of humor’: West Seattle Shambhala Meditation starting Tuesday

August 31, 2014 at 5:43 pm | In Delridge, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

Sometimes, the time post-Labor Day feels like a mini-New Year of sorts … a time for new beginnings, and we don’t just mean the start of school. Here’s something that’s getting started just after Labor Day in West Seattle: Shambhala Meditation. From Susan:

West Seattle Shambhala Meditation group offers meditation sessions on Tuesday evenings at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (across from the Delridge Community Center and Skatepark). Whether you are new to meditation or are an old hand, and regardless of your religious affiliation, you are welcome to join us!

We offer meditation instruction, group meditation, and a space for discussion and exploration of topics related to our practice, and a supportive community. Through our meditation, we develop the possibility of meeting our everyday activities with awareness, peace, wisdom, compassion, and a sense of humor.

Ongoing Series (every Tuesday evening)

6:20-6:30 PM: Meditation Instruction
6:30-7:30 PM: Meditation
7:30-8:00 PM: Guest Speaker or Group Discussion
8:00-8:30 PM: Social time and refreshments

Check their online calendar first, in case of changes. They’re in the south classroom at Youngstown, which is at 4408 Delridge Way SW.

  3. Thanks – the URL linked is the one they specifically sent. But sometimes people do just send top-level designs when the page could be more specific. – TR

  4. We teach mindfulness and nonviolent communication in the Washington state prisons. Recently 20 of our volunteers were trained in Mindfulness based out of a prison model. We would enjoy being speakers for any of your available sessions. I can be contacted at 425.351.2662.
    Thanks for considering us!
