Thursday Evening Drop-In Class

In Touch with Reality: Meditations on Emptiness


6:30pm - 7:30pm

Live Stream


(free for members)

This series of classes explores a traditional series of meditations called "Lamrim", or "Stages of the Path" which lead to the everlasting happiness of Enlightenment.  You do not need to be Buddhist to attend--everyone is welcome--and no previous experience is needed.

Each week we will explore a different meditation--the teacher will explain the meditation, the benefits of practicing the meditation regularly, and then guide a meditation.  There is also opportunity to ask questions during the class.


  • Currently, this class is only available live. It's not recorded, and not available to view later.
