MEDITATION SESSIONS

MEDITATION SESSIONS  ~come sit with us!

We now have several types of group meditation available at different times during the week. Some of them, such as mindfulness meditation and Om Ah Hung practice, are very simple and a great place to begin. Green Tara meditation is just a bit more advanced – although if you are beginner and want to try Tara meditation you are always welcome! The Milarepa Guru Yoga meditation will be offered once a month. It is a beautiful practice with a fairly lengthy sadhana.

All of our meditation sessions are free and on a drop-in basis. We are able to offer them to the public due to the generosity of our members. So if you begin coming to the center regularly, please consider becoming a member to support our programs.
