How can we find meaning in our lives? How can we live without fear, with kindness and happiness? If you want to live more mindfully, tame your mind to handle the world's chaos with equanimity, and interact with others with more compassion and good heart, then please join us. We strive to make everything we do and say be of benefit to others.

Our tradition has an unbroken lineage all the way back to the historical Buddha. We are affiliated with our center in Raleigh.

We don't charge anything for any classes. You only need to bring an open mind and an open heart.

Every week we meditate and study a text or topic and discuss it, and reflect and meditate on it to see how we can make it part of our daily life. And don't worry if you're coming in in the middle; we welcome everyone at all times.

For as long as space endures
And for as long as living beings remain,
Until then may I too abide
To dispel the misery of the world.

— Santideva (Guide to Bodhisattva's Way of Life)
