About Us

Kadampa Meditation Center Tampa Bay

We offer regular classes that teach Buddhist meditation and the Buddhist way of life. The Center is a member of the New Kadampa Tradition following the Teachings and example of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, a fully accomplished meditation master and internationally renowned Teacher of Buddhism. Our teachings include advice on positive thinking, relaxation techniques and practical advice for solving everyday problems. We also organize study programs, community events, special day courses, retreats and weekend spiritual holidays abroad.

Founded in 1996 KMC Tampa Bay was the first center of Kadampa Buddhism to be established in Florida. The Center owns a beautiful and peaceful property just off Main Street in downtown Safety Harbor on the corner of 6th Avenue South and 2nd Street South. Situated conveniently close to the Courtney Campbell Causeway, Howard Franklin Bridge, and US Highway 19 North, the Safety Harbor location is easily accessible from anywhere in the Tampa Bay and Pinellas County area. Just five minutes’ walk from the famous Safety Harbor Spa, the Center offers a delightful spacious meditation room, bookstore, meditation garden, and comfortable sitting areas for socializing.
