What we're about

This group is operated by Kadampa Meditation Center Long Island.

Welcome to Kadampa Meditation Center Long Island in Port Jefferson. We offer drop-in meditation classes, study programs and workshops on meditation.

What will I gain from these classes?

The classes will help you learn how to relax your mind, sharpen your concentration, and generally begin feeling more energized and refreshed. They will also provide you with new tools for dealing with stress, anxiety, and problems. Meditation will help you to overcome negative states of mind such as anger and jealousy, and to cultivate positive minds such as patience and love.

The talks and guided meditations will provide you with the foundation for developing a powerful meditation practice. A regular meditation practice has many benefits:

• helps reduce stress

• overcomes anxiety and worry

• brings inner calm and a feeling of well-being

• gives clarity to solve our problems

• helps us deal with challenging people and situations

Everyone very welcome. No experience, special clothes needed. Chairs are provided as well as cushions.

How to Really Love Others

with Joanna Zalewski

Others’ suffering can mobilize us to deepen our empathy, and create a culture of kindness and healing. Learn special contemplations both to gradually increase the power of our good heart and also to explore our own mind to uncover any obstacles to building such empathy for others.

How Peaceful Can You Get?
with Kathy Harders

A Bodhisattva is “a friend of the world,” who, moved by compassion for the suffering of living beings, trains in six profound practices: giving, moral discipline, patience, joyful effort, concentration, and wisdom. These practices energize and inspire us to attain both our own happiness and also our greater ability to benefit others with wisdom through integrating kindness into our daily life.

You Can Do Anything, Just Not Everything 😎 MEDITATION for Caregivers & everyone

Kadampa Meditation Center-LI Port Jefferson


Relax and Recharge: Meditation for Caregivers
with Susan Brenner

As caregivers we wish so often that things could be different, for the people we care for, for ourselves, this new way of life. Through meditation and listening to Buddha’s healing guidance we can discover how to create acceptance within our own heart, patient acceptance of our situation. When we no longer strain against but courageously accept our caregiving role, we can use our energy both to care for ourselves and and also to give compassionate care to others. Each class includes a teaching, meditation, and time for discussion.

Everyone Welcome
