About Sunday Morning Meditation

The Nalandabodhi practice path begins with a basic resting meditation practice called calm-abiding or shamatha. Nalandabodhi, Center for American Buddhism Seattle holds meditation practice sessions most Sundays from 10:00 am – noon in the main shrineroom. Everyone is welcome, and meditation instruction is available.

Walking meditation every half hour or so.

Feel free to drop in or depart any time.

While shamatha meditation is common to several spiritual traditions and has many techniques, all forms of shamatha are designed to help calm the mind and bring forth its natural qualities of spaciousness, clarity and attentiveness. Practice Instructors (PI) work with newer students to determine which technique is most beneficial and at what point to introduce another shamatha practice. For basic instructions on how to meditate, see “How to Meditate“on the Nalandabodhi International website.

Meditation is offered on Sundays unless there is a conflicting program. Refer to the Nalandabodhi Seattle Calendar page to confirm that meditation is taking place.
