Classes and Events

This page lists the upcoming programs and events of the West Chester Shambhala Meditation Center. At right, you can select a calendar view of events. Most of our classes are open to everyone, but some classes are in a series, and so they do require you to have taken the previous class. Each entry will list any prerequisites, if there are any.
