What we're about

Meet like-minded people interested in meditation near you! Learn how to meditate or deepen your current meditation practice. The meditations we emphasize is the ease in which they can be used both “on the cushion” and in our daily lives.

Each meeting will include practical meditation, and a talk on how to reduce stress and other problems encountered in daily life and how to increase mental and physical well-being. There will also be plenty of time to discuss the ideas presented. Although the meditations and talks are based on Kadampa Buddhist philosophy, you don't need to be a Buddhist to enjoy this group or benefit from our meditations.

Kadampa Buddhism (http://kadampa.org/buddhism/kadampa-buddhism) stresses a spiritual path of individual transformation and to look within ourselves for the inner peace and happiness we seek. Everyone is welcome!
