Weekday Classes at the Dallas Temple

 

Come and enjoy drop-in meditation classes at our newly renovated 8500 square foot downtown Dallas Temple! The Temple offers an ideal setting to learn about and improve your meditation practice in an inspiring and peaceful environment.

Drop-in classes are offered several times per week and oriented towards those that are new to meditation and Buddhism. Some classes have fees and some are by donation, however no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. 

Everyone is welcome!
