Kadampa Meditation Center Chicago is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to sharing the practical wisdom of Buddha’s teachings with everyone in the Chicago area who wishes to improve their life 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 Wicker Park. We also offer branch classes in South Bend, IN.
We are part of the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT-IKBU), an international network of over 1200 independent, non-profit centers and branches in over 40 countries, all devoted to sharing Kadampa Buddhism throughout the world.
