Woodlawn Meditation Sangha meets every second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 7:00 - 8:30 pm at 6515 S Ingleside Avenue, Unit 1, in Chicago.

We are on Ingleside Avenue at 65th Street, just 3 houses from the corner, on the east side of the street.

*** Please note that the door to the building will be locked at 7:00 pm. ***

Our gatherings generally include a 30 minute sitting meditation (which will be lightly guided depending on the experience level of participants), a mindfulness exercise, followed by dharma sharing and discussion. Tea will be offered at the conclusion of the session to give participants an opportunity to meet and chat with one another.

Chairs and meditation cushions are available. You are welcome to bring your own if you prefer (the room has wood floors).

There is no cost to attend. Dana (a donation) is always appreciated to help pay for the cost of the space and operating expenses. However, no one will be turned 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.
