New to meditation or the center?
Meditation is a practice that anyone can do, and it can become a lifelong path – especially if you are supported by a warm and vibrant community.
Join us for free instruction in mindfulness-awareness meditation, one of our public meditation sessions, a weekly introductory dharma talk, or one of our many evening and weekend programs based on the Shambhala teachings. We offer classes and meditation instruction for both beginners and people with years of experience.
We look forward to meeting you!
