The Shaker Heights group meets every Thursday from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM in the Baker Room at the First Unitarian Church of Cleveland.  The church is located at 21600 Shaker Boulevard, Shaker Heights.  Find our meeting location


The format for our meetings is as follows:


   ~ 15 minutes of sitting meditation

   ~ 30 minutes for dharma talk or discussion

   ~ 45 minutes of sitting meditation


Dharma talks are offered on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month.


Our discussion time is used for questions about meditation practice, for checking in with each other on how our meditation practice is going, and to support each others’ practice efforts.


There is no need to contact us prior to joining us, but you are most welcome to contact us if you have questions.  There is never any cost for the meditation.  Each meditation session is complete on its own, so you can join us on any evening that works for you.


Shaker Heights Meditation Group

All Are Welcome

We welcome all to come and join us in meditation, whether you are new to meditation or have been practicing for years.  The setting of the Baker Room where we meet is serene and peaceful and generally conducive to quieting the mind.



If you would like instruction

It can seem daunting to sit for 15 or more minutes in meditation if you are new to this practice.  What am I supposed to be doing?  Am I doing it right?  


If you would like some instructions on concentration and insight practice prior to sitting in meditation,   please contact us and we can meet with you for a few minutes before our scheduled sit.
