The Meditation Challenge 2024
January 1 – 12, 2024

Make 2024 a meaningful year through the power of your spiritual practice.

⬇ SCROLL DOWN TO REGISTER for the Challenge ⬇⬇

Meditation is a powerful, life-changing practice that gives your life purpose and happiness. To help you start off 2024 in a positive, meaningful, and personally transformative way, we invite you to take The Meditation Challenge.

What is the challenge?

Attend a KMC LA meditation class or Midday Meditation on ten out of twelve days to begin 2024!! 

Engaging in guided meditation with like-minded people in the positive, encouraging, supportive environment of KMC LA is the perfect way to kickstart your mind, and thereby your daily happiness, in the new year. Participants will be given a punch card with 10 dates. Each day you attend a class, your card is stamped (one stamp per day).

What is the prize?  If you attend class 10 out of the 12 days during the Challenge Period, you have successfully completed The Meditation Challenge, and your 2024 will be off to a meaningful start!

Not only that: for the rest of January 2024, you may attend any KMC LA meditation classes and branch classes for free! (excludes workshops and retreats).

Each class emphasizes how to integrate Buddha’s teachings into your life. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn on how to develop and strengthen authentic love and compassion, and how to transform all our daily situations into opportunities for spiritual growth.

Taught by senior teachers from KMC LA, each special weeknight Meditation Challenge class will include guided meditations and teachings based on the book New 8 Steps to Happiness by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.  This incredible text explains step by step, how to deepen our happiness and peace from within.  In each session we will understand and meditate on one of the essential eight steps.

Chairs and cushions are provided by the Center. 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.


2024 Meditation Challenge: $50 (includes punch card and free attendance at all classes listed above, except the Sat Jan 6 Workshop which has a 50% discount for Challenge participants: $12.50)

Not participating in the Challenge? Everyone is welcome to attend this special series of Meditation Challenge weeknight classes! Individual Tues-Wed-Thur-Fri weeknight classes: $10 per class (excludes Sun GP & Mon GP) / Free for KMC LA Members –  Learn about membership here.

*NOTE: Although KMC LA members need not participate in the Challenge itself (because all the meditations and weeknight classes are already included in their membership for free!), all are invited to attend this special series of Meditation Challenge classes.

All special Meditation Challenge evening classes will be live-streamed at the time of class (no recordings) for KMC LA members via the Member Portal.
