Our meditation classes are designed to give a broad introduction to Buddhist meditation, spirituality, and practice. A typical class consists of a guided meditation to reduce stress, tension and distractions, followed by a short talk on applying Buddhist principles to daily life. Time is allowed for questions and answers, and a final meditation.
These classes are open to everyone for “drop-in” attendance, but can also form the basis for a Buddhist practice. Please come whenever you like!
Here are the upcoming class topics.
Our class fee is $10/class ($5 for students/seniors/unemployed).
You can also become a member starting at $30/month and receive discounts while you help to provide a steady level of support for our activities. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization - your giving is our main source of income. We appreciate your generosity!
