Mahamudra Kadampa Meditation Center is a peaceful place of refuge and spiritual encouragement. We present meditation and Buddha’s timeless wisdom for a happier life. Everyone is welcome in our community.

We are a volunteer run, modern Buddhist meditation center that is one of over 1200 Kadampa Temples, Centers and branches in 45 countries. We offer meditation classes and retreats with a focus on practical techniques to use in daily life.

Solve Daily Problems

All our classes and retreats are designed to solve the problems of modern living, providing relevant solutions to the struggles we all face on a day to day basis. Through practical, simple​,​ and scientific methods, ​everyone​ can directly transform the way they perceive themselves, others​, ​and the world in which we live. We offer tools you can ​​immediately apply to solve daily problems and become ​calmer, more ​relaxed, ​and ​happ​ier.

Heal Mental Pai​n​

​Buddha’s teachings ​​provide practical solutions to pervasive mental and emotional difficulties, helping to heal anxiety, stress, anger, frustration, depression, loneliness, jealousy, addiction, boredom​, ​and confusion.

Cultivate Good Qualities

Through spititual training, we can all learn to cultivate inner qualities that lead to authentic, lasting peace simply by changing our thoughts and attitudes. Through practicing Kadampa Buddhist meditation, we become kinder, more patient, positive, joyful, relaxed, confident, focused, content, blissful, creative, and fulfilled.

Change Ourselves, Heal Our World

The practical meditations and ideas we teach help people change their mind, which is the most powerful agent of change in the world. Our experience of ​everything is a reflection of the quality of our mind​.​​ So, if we ​wish to change our world, we need to change the quality of our mind. By thinking about ourselves, others​,​ and the world​ around us​ in more constructive​ and​ positive ways, we ​are able to ​have a positive impact upon our relationships and our world.

Develop Your Spiritual Potential

We have an extraordinary capacity to change. Step by step, we can learn how to tap into this powerful potential that lies within. Gradually, through training our mind, we can ​ripen our highest spiritual potential, the fully awakened state of enlightenment, and be of tremendous benefit to our family, friends, and to this world.

From first time meditators to seasoned practitioners…
