Bodhi Tree Meditation Center

654-A N. Judd Street · Honolulu, HI

What we're about

Meditation, discussion and fellowship. Regular gatherings, weekly and monthly, with committed leaders. Special events, too, featuring distinguished guest speakers and potluck meals. We meet at the Bodhi Tree Dharma Center in Nu'uanu. On festive occasions we celebrate together with other groups who use the center.

The Bodhi Tree Dharma Center is spiritual center offering meditative practices from a variety of traditions. Our vision is to make the practice of meditation openly available to those in society most in need; to develop and deepen the capacity for unconditional, selfless dedication to the service of others; and to exercise innovation and creativity in the application of Mindfulness to healing, the arts and daily living.

The Center also serves as a spiritual, educational and social gathering place for Vietnamese, Burmese and Thai residents. These communities hold their ceremonies and host visiting monks at the Center. Classes in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Non Violent Communication are offered along with Vipassana and Tibetan forms of meditation for our English speaking community.

We wish to deepen our understanding of the relationship between self and other and reflect that understanding in positive forms of transformation for the individual, the family and the community.
