All of our drop-in meditation classes are perfectly suited for busy modern people. You do not need to be a Buddhist to enjoy and understand Buddha’s teachings – anyone can benefit from increased inner peace.

The general structure of the class is as follows:

  • Simple guided breathing meditation
  • Practical teaching on how to solve problems in daily life
  • Second guided meditation on the teaching topic
  • Brief discussion or Q & A

Drop-ins welcome!
