What you can expect coming to an introductory evening?
You will be introduced to the Karma Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.
Our introductory evenings make it easy for anyone to learn Buddhist meditation. Suited especially for those who are new to Diamond Way Buddhism or to meditation in general, the evenings start with a practitioner who gives a 30-minute introductory talk on Buddhism. You will learn about the 3 main types of meditation that Tibetan Buddhism offers, including a Diamond Way meditation on the 16th Karmapa.
This meditation on the 16th Karmapa has been passed down from teacher to student and is done in Diamond Way centers worldwide. This meditation is very profound and has a cumulative effect on the mind, leading to greater clarity, calmness and joyfulness. The meditation is guided, so you just need to follow along.
No prior knowledge of Buddhism or meditation experience is necessary. Everyone is welcome.
We have meditation cushions available. Feel free to bring your own cushion if you have one.
Public meditations are free. Donations will help to preserve Diamond Way teachings & meditations and keep them accessible to the public.
Suggested Donation $10 (children free)
