Our classes are appropriate for beginners as well as experienced meditators and our sangha is welcoming and supportive. A typical class begins with Shamatha-Vipassana meditation followed by a Dhamma talk and sangha Q&A and discussion. We close meditation classes with a five minute guided Metta intentional meditation.
If you are new to meditation and mindfulness or to the direct teachings of the Buddha, please visit For New Visitors.
We request a $15 donation for our classes. All are always welcome regardless of donation.
Please arrive a few minutes early.
Directions are below. Our entrance is through the rear courtyard. Please, no parking in the courtyard.
We look forward to sharing the Dhamma with you. Peace.
Providing freely accessible text, audio, and video content
takes time and is quite expensive.
If you find benefit here, please
My Dhamma articles and talks are based on the Buddha's teachings (suttas) as preserved in the Sutta Pitaka, the second book of the Pali Canon. I have relied primarily on Thanissaro Bhikkhu’s excellent and insightful translation of the Pali generously made freely available at his website Dhammatalks.org, as well as the works of Acharya Buddharakkhita, Nyanaponika Thera, John Ireland, Maurice Walsh, Hellmuth Hecker, and Sister Khema, among others, as preserved at Access To Insight.
Also, I have found Bhikkhu Bodhi's translations from Wisdom Publications Pali Canon Anthologies to be most informative and an excellent resource.
I have made edits to the suttas from these sources for further clarity, to modernize language, to minimize repetition, and maintain contextual relevance to Dependent Origination and Four Noble Truths.
