We are a peer lead group all about Buddhist practice, discussion and inquiry. An open door for Buddhists of all lineages, as well as all who are interested in the teachings of the Buddha.

The principles the Buddha taught 2,500 years ago have led to happier lives for countless human beings, and apply today more than ever to reduce stress and uncertainties, and to provide peace and mental stability.  We believe all beings are the same in their desire to be happy and not to suffer needlessly.  Buddhism teaches that the mind is the cause of most of our problems, but can eliminate them, as well, through study and meditation.

We invite beginners and experienced Buddhist practitioners to join us in a relaxed atmosphere -  with no obligation whatsoever.  We only seek happiness, understanding, and compassion for ourselves and for others.

We begin our meetings at 6:30 pm with a 30 minute meditation followed by a dharma talk and group discussion until 8: 00. Latecomers please enter quietly from the back of the room.

We recommend that newcomers examine the 4 Noble Truths and the 8-fold Noble Path of the Buddha before attending one of our presentations and discussions, or attend one of our 'Introduction to Buddhism' meetings when announced on this website - and we invite those who are not familiar with meditation to post on our discussion page a request for brief instruction from one of our experienced practitioners, usually before the beginning of a meeting.

Finally, to remain a member you must attend a meeting or visit our Meetup web page at least every 7 months.
