General Program and Beginner Meditation
Our popular meditation classes are approximately one and a half hours long and include guided meditations, teaching and discussion. See the map below to find locations near you.
These classes are open to anyone who wishes to learn more about meditation, the Buddhist way of life, or those who just want a couple of hours of peace and calm! You are welcome to join at any time. We also regularly hold other special events. If you live a far distance from our Centers and are interested in finding classes in your area, or in subscribing to our correspondence Foundation Program, please let us know!
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 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 $10 each. Become a sponsor for as little $40 per month and get the book included on the first class of each series!
