Join us and explore ancient Buddhist wisdom for contemporary life.
We integrate both traditional Buddhist methods of meditation and mind-training with secular, empirically-based practices of mindfulness, altruism and self-compassion.
Everyone is welcome!
All that's required is your wise and open heart.
For as long as space endures, and for as long as living beings remain, may I too abide to dispel the miseries of the world.
