Our meditation classes are designed to give a broad introduction to Buddhist meditation, ideas, and practice. A typical class consists of two guided meditations, a teaching on a Buddhist topic, and optional class discussion. This class is open to everyone and is a perfect place to start if you are new to Buddhism and/or meditation, but can also form the basis for a systematic study of Buddhist practice. Drop-ins are welcome. Please come whenever you like!

Classes are taught by Resident Teacher Julie Francisco, Julie has studied and taught Kadampa Buddhism for many years. She has also engaged in extensive meditation retreat and is well-qualified to introduce others into Buddha’s teachings and meditation practices. She previously served as the Education Program Coordinator at Amitayus Kadampa Buddhist Center in Philadelphia while also working a regular job in the corporate sector. Julie shows a clear example of how to be a modern, lay Buddhist practitioner in a busy city, and presents Buddha’s teachings in an eloquent and inspiring manner.
