Shambhala Meditation Center of Atlanta says
The LGBTQ Sangha is a community of meditation practice for all people, founded and hosted by LGBTQ people [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer] and sponsors a free meditation open house that caters to Atlanta’s LGBTQ community. The LGBTQ Sangha provides a safe and sane environment in which the unique concerns and experiences of LGBTQ individuals are addressed and through which the Dharma can be viewed and discussed through the lens of the “Queer” experience. We are at all levels of experience, from questioning/beginners to long-time practitioners but all are welcome.

If you’d like to join our facebook group send an email to and ask to be added to Atlanta Shambhala’s LGBTQ Sangha on FB. If you would like to be on our mailing list you can email Sally Larrick at and ask to be added to our LGBTQ Sangha email list.

We generally begin each session with 20 minutes of Meditation. Formal meditation instruction is not provided at these sessions, however instruction is not required to attend. The Atlanta Shambhala Meditation Center offers free instruction on Tuesdays at 7pm and Sundays at 10am . We recommend that everyone receive in-depth meditation instruction and training. We spend the rest of our time until 9pm with a reading/discussion. Come for meditation and for the reading, or for either. The LGBTQ Sangha meets the 3rd Thursday of each month from 7pm to 9pm at the Atlanta Shambhala Meditation Center. Come back to this page or contact the center for details regarding our scheduled reading for the month. (Join us on our LGTBQ Sangha Facebook page for ongoing news and discussions throughout the month (contact the center or email us and we will add you to the private LGBTQ Sangha page on FB ).

Meditation practice provides a warm, genuine basis for realizing the full potential of our inherent wisdom. Through the practice, we learn to touch in with this wisdom, allowing us to live our lives with a mind that is more present and fully engaged. Waking up to our own inherent goodness has a natural impact on our family members, friends, co-workers, and our world at large.
