Tuesday Night General Program (GP)

Inner Buddhist technology: A path to happiness

Special 12-week Series with Gen Kelsang Choma August 28 through November 13

Buy Series

This will be a 12 week series of General Program classes covering the 14 Lamrim meditations in How to Understand the Mind.

The Kadam Lamrim or Stages of the Path is an actual map to Enlightenment. If we take this into our hearts, we gain confidence and courage for our spiritual practice. Everyone has a Buddha nature and now is the time to realize our potential.

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.

**On the first Tuesday of every month, please join us for “happy half-hour”.  See details below.
