The best way to learn how to meditate is to jump right in and meditate. This mini-retreat provides the perfect opportunity. We will have three sessions of guided meditation so that we can experience a peaceful mind in the busyness of our lives. At the same time, taking time out like this to meditate is an excellent way to really deepen your meditative abilities.

There will be brief teachings and Question and Answer sessions. This retreat is suitable for everyone regardless of experience or background.

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 urban meditation retreats. The retreats are approximately every six weeks (April 4, 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 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 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 do not need to attend the classes in order.

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.
