Come check out the Center! Members of our community will be around to meet you, answer any questions and offer a short tour + meditation. During the tour, you will learn about the origins and purpose of the Center, the symbolism and statues found in our meditation room and anything else you have questions about. Together, we'll try a 15-minute meditation to connect to a peaceful state of mind. Our bookstore and gift shop will also be open!

About Our Community

Everyone is welcome

Community is important to us. The way of being at the Center exemplifies how Kadampa Buddhist practices and modern life go hand in hand. We integrate the teachings we receive into the activities and dialogue that make up our Center life. It feels simple, harmonious and easy to enjoy your inner and outer environment.

Our Founder and Spiritual Teacher Geshe Kelsang Gyatso often says, "everyone welcome!" Yes, everyone is welcome to join the Center, its classes, events and practices regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender and so on. We know that everyone benefits from Buddha's teachings and we're delighted to have our doors open to help make that happen.

Did you know that all our classes and events are run by a volunteer team of 60+?! Check out the video below:
