Walk-ins are always welcome, or one can subscribe via Meetup or Eventbrite. This is a service for the benefit of our communities, offered with loving kindness (Metta) by the Dhammawood Meditation Center of California. It is totally free of charge to the participant.
Conducted by a Buddhist monk ordained under the Theravada Buddhist philosophy, the program not only outlines the types of meditation and the benefits of each but also connects the practice seamlessly to core principles of awareness or mindfulness (as taught in the Theravada Buddhist philosophy), which in turn allows the participant to constantly be aware of the negative states in mind and take corrective action.
