Introductory Courses

Several times a year, we offer courses that explore the basic teachings of the Buddha in both meditation practice and daily life. We will introduce and deepen the practice of mindfulness, with the aim of integrating mindfulness into all aspects of our lives. Each session will include guided meditation instruction, talks on fundamental Buddhist teachings, and time for questions and discussion. This class is appropriate for those new to meditation as well as those wishing to refine their existing practice. People of all ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender identities are welcome.
