Bringing Timeless Buddhist Wisdom to Modern Life

Kadampa Meditation Center Chicago is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization dedicated to sharing the practical wisdom of Buddha's teachings with everyone in the Chicago area through meditation and mindfulness practices. We offer an array of drop-in classes, weekend events, and retreats open to everyone and suitable for all levels of experience.


Most of our classes and events are held at our two locations: in Oak Park and in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. We also offer branch classes in South Bend, IN and Bloomington-Normal, IL.
