I have never been to the center before. Where do I begin?
The Sunday or Thursday evening class is best for beginners. You do not need any previous experience or knowledge to attend these classes. Each month there is a Saturday beginners course also. Please check the calendar for these upcoming events.
Do I need to be Buddhist to attend a class?
No. You only need an interest in increasing your inner peace. The advice given in these classes is helpful for everyone.
What should I wear?
Wear whatever is comfortable for you. You may sit in a chair, or on a cushion. We typically remove our shoes before entering the meditation room.
Are the beginner classes appropriate for children?
Our general program classes are suitable for ages 13 and up, depending on the child’s level of interest. For those younger, we have a class on Sundays called “Dharma 4 Kids”.
