What To Expect
It begins with a short introduction on a Buddhist topic, followed by a guided meditation.
Our monthly open houses give a more comprehensive introductory talk, which usually lasts around 30 minutes.*
What Is Buddhist Meditation?
In Buddhism, meditation means "effortlessly remaining in what is". This state may be brought about by calming and holding the mind, when compassion and wisdom are realized, or by working with our bodies' energy channels and meditating on light forms of Buddhas.
