Friday Morning Drop-In Class

The Power of Joy Retreat


10:30am - 11:30am

Oak Park


(free for members)

During the month of January, Kadampa Centers worldwide engage in meditation retreat. In that spirit, our weekly Friday morning class will provide a deeper experience of meditation by focusing on the same meditation for the entire month: the spiritual preciousness of our life. By contemplating skillfully this meditation will heighten our spiritual awareness and infuse our daily life with greater energy, focus, and joy.

Each class will include guidance and explanation, guide you in two meditations, and provide time for questions.

Please note: You do not need to attend every week of the retreat -- you are welcome to drop in at any time.

No previous experience is necessary; absolutely everyone is welcome.


No registration available at the moment. Please try again later.

No one turned away for lack of funds. Please contact us to ask about financial accommodations.
