Our meditation classes 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 and Simply Meditate 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 so you can just drop in and enjoy. They provide an ideal introduction to meditation and Buddhism, teaching effective and practical methods for overcoming problems and increasing happiness in daily life.
Classes are $5 each. Become a member for $35 per month and attend as many KMC Tampa Bay General Program (GP), Simply Meditate and Meditations for World Peace (MWP) classes as you like!

Online Classes and Fees
The fee for each live stream class is per person. Registration and access links to the classes are not to be shared by more than one individual. Classes are offered live and online. Unless otherwise indicated, no video or audio recording will be made available afterward.
To help support and strengthen local communities, we ask those living outside of Florida's Tampa Bay area to receive live stream classes from their local Kadampa Meditation/Buddhist Center.
Refunds and Cancellation
Registrants may cancel participation in a live class and receive a full refund by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or KMCTB.email@example.com before the start time of the class. No refunds will be given after the class begins unless there are unique circumstances that are submitted in writing to KMCTB.firstname.lastname@example.org.
