"Meditate with the Monk" Buddhism in Charlotte Pages

Who we are People interested in learning meditation techniques for spiritual uplift, stress reduction, and personal growth; and also anyone interested more specifically in the teachings of the Buddha straight from the scriptures yet adapted to our needs here and now. Charlotte-born fully ordained Buddhist female monk, Ayya Sudhamma, brings to the group her nearly 20 years of experience living in Theravada Buddhist monasteries to offer a variety of meditation techniques and Buddhist wisdom. People of all religions are welcome. (We don't want to convert anyone.)

What we do
We offer a variety of classes, such as meditation for stress reduction, meditation for spiritual growth or uplift, and traditional Buddhist lectures and discussion. Meditations are guided by Ayya Sudhamma.

Where we meet
Most meetings will take place at a residence in northeast Charlotte, in the "Shamrock" neighborhood near Shamrock Dr & Eastway Dr (also not far from Shamrock & Sharon Amity), but sometimes we meet off-site, perhaps at a zen center, or outdoors such as at Reedy Creek Park. To make sure you go to the right place, the address becomes visible when you sign up for a particular meeting.

Here's what we've got regularly scheduled at this time:

  • Tuesdays 7pm-8:30 pm weekly "An Evening for Personal Growth" - the first Tuesday of the month specially focuses on meditation for beginners; the 2nd Tuesday is on various topics requested;
  • Wednesdays 10:30 am-Noon weekly "Wednesday Morning Meditations";
  • Thursdays 7pm-8:30 pm weekly "Meditation for Awakening"
  • Saturdays 2 pm-2:30 pm weekly: "Meditation for Calm and Well-being" (followed by regular weekly scripture studies for any who wish to stay) - the 1st Saturday of each month is focused on introducing Buddhism to newcomers; the 2nd Saturday begins with a long (two-hour) period meditation.
  • Last Sunday of the month: We hold a casual lunch get-together at a restaurant.

    (All our meetings may be adjusted in response to input from members like you.)

    Peaceful, friendly people
    are dawn to our meditations. Join us!
