Friday Morning Meditation Class in Oak Park

Meditations for an Inspired Life


10:30am - 11:30am

Oak Park & Livestream


free for members

This weekly class explores a sequence of practical and profound meditations called Lamrim ("Stages of the Path") which are the very essence of Kadampa Buddhism. These meditations act as supreme medicine that heals the stresses, negativities, and confusion within us, and finally leads us naturally to a state of ultimate, lasting happiness.

Focusing on one meditation at a time from the Lamrim sequence, each class includes practical instruction, guided meditation, and the opportunity to ask questions. No previous experience is necessary; absolutely everyone is welcome!

This class is held in person, and is also available by livestream for monthly members.


Registration on this page is for in-person attendance. Monthly members can join the class online through the Livestream Classes for Members page.

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

Please note our Refund Policy before registering.

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

How to Transform Your Life

The book How to Transform Your Life is a practical manual for daily life, which is especially appropriate for busy, modern people. It shows how we can develop and maintain inner peace, how we can reduce and stop our experience of problems, and how we can bring about positive changes in our life that will enable us to experience deep and lasting happiness.

Everyone is welcome - whether you’re brand new to meditation or an experienced practitioner. Each class includes clear and practical guidance based upon the book, two guided meditations, plus an opportunity to ask questions.
