As many of you know, we will be holding a special all-day retreat and closing ceremony, The Art of Letting Go, at 741 Atlantic Ave. We have enjoyed several years at this space and as with all things, it is time to let go. Peacebuilders has signed the building over and requires all tenants to relocate.We are working on finding an improved space that is safer, more convenient, and more accessible
Long Beach Meditation is an important part of many people’s lives and we intend on improving our service to the community by providing guided meditation, yoga, dharma talks, and retreats. We hope that you will enjoy our new home as much or even more than you enjoyed this one.
There are two special opportunities in the very near future: Our 1-Day Retreat, The Art of Letting Go on June 24, 2017 from 9am-3pm (with a space-closing ceremony to follow), and our 2017 Summer 3-Day Retreat, Resting in Serenity from Friday, July 7 at 2pm to Sunday, July 9 at 11:00am.
Join us for one or both of these opportunities to expand your mindfulness practice and celebrate with us as we transition to our new home. We are very excited to share more with you about our continued vision for Long Beach Meditation, as we look to improve our programs, our location, and our communications with you.

Your enthusiasm for mindfulness meditation, the Dharma and your friends, teachers and aquaintances at LBM has kept us going strong for over two decades! The Board of Directors, Teachers' Council, staff and sangha will all work together to ensure that our community has a safe place to learn and practice the healing art of meditation.
