Be guided in a short breathing meditation and connect to an experience of inner peace. No prior experience is necessary. Every week the teachings explore one aspect of Dharma, or Buddha’s teachings, which focus on solutions to problems in daily life, inducing genuine optimism and increased happiness. At the end of the class, there is time for questions & answers.

Enjoy the company of like-minded people after class in the Temple, Café and Bookstore. Light refreshments are offered.
Our meditation classes are very accessible. You do not need to bring any mats or wear any special clothing. We provide both cushions and chairs, and there is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved. Feel free to come however you are comfortable. We ask people to remove shoes and hats when you enter the meditation room. These classes perfect for everyone – no previous meditation experience is necessary and all classes are self-contained.
