About Drop-in Classes at Kadampa Meditation Center LA & our Branch classes

General Program (GP) classes are suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. Although classes are given in a series around one specific theme, they are drop-in in nature and can be taken individually, as each class topic is self-contained.

The classes are designed to help those looking for Buddhist wisdom to help with stress relief and relaxation, as well as those interested in exploring the nature of the mind, and pursuing the Buddhist path. Classes explore the basic framework of Buddhist teachings and meditation and explain how to use Buddha’s advice in our daily lives to solve our problems. All General Program classes are based on commentaries by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

A typical class consists of a guided relaxation meditation, a teaching based on the meditation topic, and final contemplative meditation. Branch classes last approximately 1 hour. Chairs and cushions are provided. No special clothing is required, and there is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of belief; you do not need to be Buddhist to attend.
