Tuesday Night General Program (GP)

Starting May 1: Four week series

Loving Kindness and Joyful Effort

Scroll down for class schedule.


Our Tuesday evening drop-in meditation classes provide a basic introduction to Buddhist teachings and meditation that are suitable for beginners and experienced meditators. Each month we explore a new topic from Buddha’s teachings and learn how to practically apply it in our daily lives.
These classes are offered as a series, but they are also self contained and can be taken individually. Please feel free to drop in on a class-by-class basis.

Every class begins with a relaxation meditation and includes a teaching, a guided meditation on the topic, discussion and Q&A. Refreshments and treats are provided after class.

No special clothing is required. No pre-registration required.

Everyone welcome.
