Everybody Welcome! Todos Bienvenidos!

Weekly Classes

We offer a wide variety of weekly classes, most of which are drop-in and suitable for all levels of practitioner. These wonderful classes include guided meditations and practical teachings. Everyone is welcome. 

Weekend Events

Our weekend program includes beginners’ workshops—which are ideal for making some headway into meditation—special one-time courses and mini-retreats that cover particular Buddhist themes. These are usually open to all levels of practitioner, but check each event’s page for details. These practical courses and workshops allow us to delve deeper into different areas of Buddha’s teachings and meditations.

Meditation Retreats

We offer meditation retreats that range from half-day retreats on Saturdays, to full weekends, to away retreats during which we stay at a retreat center in the mountains. These relaxing and profound retreats help us create the space to more deeply contemplate and meditate on specific teachings.
