Nashville Shambhala: 2020 The Year of Compassion.

410 Central Ave. Nashville TN 37211

Join us online for Sunday and Wednesday Meditation.

We are a community of meditators who are exploring our own basic goodness through meditation and studying the dharma.  We invite you to spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation. All are welcome, as we embrace our diversity and our basic goodness as humans.  It is our meditation practice that unites us.

If you are new to meditation we offer instruction on Sundays at 10 am and on Wednesdays at 7 pm.  We’d love to meet you! Visit our membership page for more about being a Nashville Shambhala member.

We are practicing regularly.
We are present for each other.
We work together, cooperatively.
We engage to understand, not refute.
We are willing to take feedback.
We take the space to hear everyone’s heart.
We take the space to speak truthfully.
Our subject matter is at its foundation basic goodness.
