Join our on-line classes

We are temporarily closed

but we’re live-streaming meditation classes!

For the month of March we are offering practical ways of thinking that reduce anxiety and that produce a light and positive mind. Meditation is extremely beneficial particularly now when we are under more stress than normal, and when our ability to physically reach out for comfort (and to comfort to others) is very limited. Buddhist meditation helps us to stay calm and connected.

Everyone is welcome to join regardless of experience in meditation. All you need is an interest in inner peace!

How to be Peaceful in Difficult Times

Tuesday Evenings, March 24 & March 31, 7-8pm

These two one-hour streamed classes will focus on methods derived from Buddha’s teachings which help us to find (and remain with) inner peace during challenging times. Each class will include easy-to-understand and helpful practical advice, along with guided meditations to show you how to gain a deeper experience. Each class is self-contained.
