Issaquah Shambhala Meditation

Please Note: Issaquah Shambhala Meditation is on break.  Please check out our other open sitting opportunities in the Seattle area including on Mercer Island.

Shambhala Center offers meditation sessions on Wednesday evenings in Issaquah. Everyone is welcome. Perfect for both beginners and established meditators.

On-going series (every Wednesday):

  • 7:00 pm:  Meditation instruction for those new to meditation
  • 7:00 – 7:30 pm:  Meditation
  • 7:45 – 9:00 pm:  Talk and dharma discussion (see Program Listings for details of discussion topic each month).

Sitting begins at 7:00 pm. Free meditation instruction is also offered for new visitors at 7:00.  In addition, if you have received instruction but have questions about the technique, this is an opportunity to speak with a trained meditation instructor. After sitting, there is time for tea. At 7:45, there is an interactive talk and discussion that allows participants to learn, ask questions, and deepen their understanding of meditation.

Note that occasionally there may be a change in the schedule — so it’s always good to check the calendar before you come, to be sure we are meeting on any given Wednesday. Issaquah Shambhala also offers specific introductory classes from time to time, which will appear in the calendar, or in the general listing of introductory classes.

Detailed Directions:
Take I-90 to the Front St Exit.  Go 1 block toward downtown Issaquah to Gilman Blvd.  Take a right on Gilman Blvd and proceed to the first left turn,  Juniper St. Turn left on Juniper and about 2 blocks ahead on the right side is the back parking lot for Gilman Village. Turn right into the parking lot and park.
