After Work Unwind
What’s the best way to relax after a long day at work? Rejuvenate your mind with meditation! This short after-work class is the perfect way to end your day and enjoy your evening. Join us every Monday after work for meditation, teachings on positive thinking and thought-provoking discussion. Everyone is welcome.
Meditation classes in downtown Tampa teach simple, practical meditation techniques based on the teachings of Kadampa Buddhism. Their intent is to help people to gain a personal experience of inner peace, overcome their daily problems and find real happiness in their hearts.
All of our General Program classes are suitable for everyone—from brand new beginners to experienced meditators—and consist of guided meditations, a talk and discussion. Classes are grouped into series of 4-6 weeks, focusing on a theme or meditation technique.
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.
