Meditation and Buddhism in Gainesville


4th Wednesday of the month, 7-8:30pm *

with Gen Kelsang Chokyan

Meditation classes in Gainesville teach basic meditation and the practice of Kadampa Buddhism. The purpose of these classes is to help people to gain personal experience of inner peace, to overcome their daily problems, and to find real happiness in their hearts.

Our Gainesville classes consist of guided meditations, a talk and discussion. The classes are suitable for everyone from beginners to experienced meditators. Each class is self contained, though you are welcome to attend the whole course. They provide an ideal introduction to meditation and Buddhism, teaching effective and practical methods for overcoming problems and increasing happiness in daily life.
