Mahamudra Meditation
Tuesdays, 7:00 PM


Mahamudra, or "The Great Seal," is a form of meditation taught and practiced by countless followers of the Buddha, and has the ability to bring the practitioner swiftly to enlightenment. Accessible to beginners and advanced meditators alike, this is one of the most popular forms of meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

Cultivate Compassion
Wednesdays, 7-8 PM


Wednesday evening are a time for taking a break in the middle of the week to cultivate and increase our compassion; for ourselve, others, all sentient beings.

We use the traditional Chenrezig practice of Tibet and discuss modern ideas of cultivating compassion.

We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of its patrons and practitioners.


In light of recent events in our community surrounding the spread of COVID-19, also known at the coronavirus, we have made the difficult decision to indefinitely cancel all in-person programs. Our online Zoom program schedule can be accessed here, and appropriate practice texts can be found in the resource library. May you and your families remain safe and healthy.
