We are Kadampa Meditation Center Houston, so naturally people come looking to learn how to meditate. The most common questions are straightforward, “Can I meditate? How can I become a better mediator? Where do I even start?” The answers are straightforward as well. 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 classes on Thursday evenings give 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, this class will give 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.  You can drop-in for any class during any point in the series.  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 (April 4, May 16, June 27, and late 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 to participate in the retreats. 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 27 - Thursday, Apr 2
