Lake Shore Meditation Sangha meets on the first and third Monday of each month from 7:00 - 8:30 pm at Chicago Park District Fieldhouse, 808 N. Lake Shore Drive, in Streeterville. We are located between Chicago and Pearson Streets at the east end of the park. Metered street parking is available. The location is wheelchair accessible. Chairs are provided for all. If you prefer a cushion/bench, please feel free to bring one. (Floors are tile.)

Our format includes 30 minutes of silent or guided meditation, a dharma talk or teaching and group discussion.

There is no fee to attend the group; however, we appreciate any donation amount to help offset the cost of the nightly room rental. We will not turn anyone away for lack of funds.

We welcome you - whether you’re new to meditation, an experienced practitioner, or anywhere in between. We seek to promote the inclusion and participation of people of diverse identities, including those of all races, ethnicities, cultures, sexual orientations, gender identities, classes, religions, political views, abilities, and ages, that all may feel welcome, safe and respected within this community.
