We are Kadampa Meditation Center Houston, so naturally people come looking to learn how to meditate. The most common questions are the most straightforward: Can I meditate? How can I be a better meditate? Where do I even start? The answers are very straightforward too. Yes, you can meditate and whether you are just starting or wanting to improve, you can join our Thursday Meditation Classes to develop your meditation practice.
Our Introduction to Buddhist Meditation gives a perfect overview and encouragement to help you get started. This six-week series of classes offers an introduction that will act as a source of encouragement for the entirety of your meditation practice. So, whether you are new or experienced, you will find this class gives you energy for a meditation practice.
Every class includes meditations, teachings, and the opportunity to ask questions.
Everyone welcome, regardless of background or experience.
For people with a special interest in learning to meditate, we have developed a special meditation program. You can drop in for any Thursday Meditation Class. These classes are structured as a set of brief series of topics. Attending the whole series will let you understand an aspect of meditation. The program is designed to help people improve and enjoy meditation practice. As part of this program we are offering four unique urban meditation retreats. The retreats are approximately every six weeks (March 28, May 9, June 20, and early August).
The retreats coincide with the conclusion of each of the four unique series of meditation classes that we hold on Thursday nights. You do not need to attend the classes in order. The subjects include: Introduction to Buddhist Meditation, Foundations of a Strong Meditation Practice, Meditation and Mindfulness, & How to Practice Buddhist Meditation. There is no attendance requirement. You can join the classes and retreats as you like. The structure was prepared to allow people to enjoy meditation and to improve their practice, while still allowing people to join at any time.
The class series and retreats will be repeated again in the fall. This means everyone who has the wish can attend all 24 classes and develop a strong understanding of meditation and have the benefit of guided meditation.
This class is being held weekly Thursday, Feb 20 - Thursday, Mar 26
