Our weekly drop-in meditation & buddhism classes have a different topic every week so you can always keep learning.  Classes begin with a simple guided breathing meditation followed by a teaching and a concluding contemplative meditation based on the topic. There is also an opportunity for questions, followed by refreshments and social time.

No meditation experience is necessary, the classes are suitable for beginners and experienced meditators, and everyone is welcome.  Each class is self-contained so you can drop in any week, please arrive 10 minutes early to check in.

Register for October Series

This three week meditation series follows up on The Science of Happiness Public Talk on September 25th. If you loved the talk, you’ll definitely love this series and if you missed the talk, no worries cause there are still plenty of juicy teachings being covered here.

Are you yearning to live a happier and more meaningful life?  You don’t have to wait.  You can learn to be happier by following what Buddhist teachers have shared for centuries: you can learn to be happier (oh yeah, and less stressed too) just as you can learn a new sport, instrument or language.

Join us to discover the Buddhist psychology for training the mind.  You will love the way this feels.

October 4 | Understanding your Mind.  This is a game changer!
October 11 | The Obstacles to our Happiness.  Avoid them and life gets a whole lot easier!
