Taught by qualified Western teachers, the meditation classes are very easy to understand and apply to our daily lives.
The classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners, and emphasize how to meditate and practice in our urban environment.
Meditation is a simple yet profound method to improve the quality of our lives and develop inner peace.
Through following very simple, practical instructions we can learn to let go of the causes of our pain and dissatisfaction and to gain the inner peace and clarity we seek.
We offer a wide range of classes from basic introductions to Buddhist meditation, applying Buddha’s teachings to daily life issues such as anger and improving relationships, to comprehensive study programs of Buddhist view, meditation and action. Everyone is welcome!
