DesPlaines (Northwest)


The Shambhala Meditation Center of Chicago offers free Monday Night Sitting Group from 6:45 – 8:45 PM. We will return to in-person meditation on July 12, 2021. The group is held in Des Plaines at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church.  Sitting and walking meditation, discussion and social time in the parish house (directly across the driveway from the church) at:

St. Martin’s Episcopal Church
1095 East Thacker Street
Des Plaines, IL 60016

(See the Map below for directions)

Due to the expanding size of the group, any attendees with meditation cushions who can bring them for the evening for their personal use, would be greatly appreciated. Meditation cushions for those who do not own them and/or who cannot bring them to the session will be provided.

Free meditation instruction is available at the beginning of the session to those who are new or wish to receive a refresher.

The group is reading together and engaging in a non-judgmental and vibrant discussion of an introduction to meditation.

Everyone is welcome.
