What we think of ourselves does matter. If we believe that our nature is less than whole, we will participate in the creation of an unhealthy environment. If we have the courage to embrace our true nature of wisdom and compassion a more healthy world will emerge. We call this basic goodness.
We offer free meditation instruction, talks and discussion to the public every week, as well as programs in meditation, Shambhala Buddhist teachings, and other contemplative disciplines. We are family friendly and offer free child care for children 4-12 years old every Sunday morning, 10:00-12:00, so parents can attend our Open House.
