Safety Harbor Meditation ClassOur 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!

Current Series

Karma

Physical, verbal, and especially mental actions we perform create a potential in our very subtle mind, and in turn every one of those potentials give rise to an effect. Our mind is like a field, and performing actions is like sowing seeds in the field—positive actions sow the seeds of happiness and negative actions sow the seeds of suffering. This relationship between actions and their effects is known as the law of karma. In this series, discover why some seem to have karma to be naturally happy and successful, while others appear to experience frustration and obstacles. Through listening to the teachings Buddha gave us, and contemplating them in meditation, we can learn to find good fortune and aver difficulties, despite whatever circumstances we may find ourselves in.
