What to Expect

There will be no class July 3 due to a concert at the Gardens.

These classes are perfect for beginners! They provide an introduction to meditation and support for starting to practice meditation, mindfulness, and applying Buddhist teachings in daily life.

Class  includes two guided meditations, a talk on Buddhism for everyday living, and time for Q&A. Although part of a monthly series, each class is stand alone. You can drop in at any time. Information on the monthly series can be found below. 

Class is followed by refreshments for those who wish to stay for more conversation.
