Learn more about our different levels of membership.

Meditation and mindfulness have a long and rich history. For centuries, people have turned to meditation as a way of living a healthy and happy life. Now, as our lives become more hectic and busy, a resurgence of interest in meditation is occurring. We all know that our modern lifestyles lack something, but few people realize that meditation will fill in this gap.

We can all find enjoyments and pleasant experiences, but the sense of well-being that comes with a stable sense of happiness and contentment is not a common experience. In this series of classes, discover why meditation is just what we all need to find the happiness that eludes us elsewhere.

Gen Kelsang Wangpo, a Buddhist monk and the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center Houston, will explain how we train in mindfulness and develop a meditation practice.

Every class includes meditations, teachings, and the opportunity to ask questions. The classes will be available for 3 days after the original broadcast.

Everyone welcome, regardless of background or experience.

We have designed a special structure for our Thursday Meditation Classes. 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. We offer on ongoing sequence 4 different meditation class series which will give you a detailed overview of every aspect of meditation. You do not need to attend the sequence of classes in order. They are: Introduction to Buddhist Meditation (Feb 18 to Mar 25), Foundations of a Strong Meditation Practice (April 1 to May 6), Meditation and Mindfulness (May 13 to June 17), & How to Practice Buddhist Meditation (June 24 to July 29). Check our online calendar for more information about these classes.

For people with a special interest in learning to meditate, we have developed a special meditation program. This retreat is part of the special meditation program that we have at KMC Houston. The program is designed to help people improve and enjoy meditation practice. As part of this program we are offering four unique online urban meditation retreats. The retreats are approximately every six weeks (Mar 27, May 8, June 26, July 31).

This class is being held weekly Thursday, May 13 to June 17
