Guided Meditation & Practical
We're fortunate to have a diverse community of Brooklynites. We've got scientists and writers, artists and teachers, retirees and parents — even an aerialist! We welcome kids. Those who attend classes at VMC are people who wish to make the most of their lives and recognize the wise and skillful nature of Buddhist practices. Everyone – religious, spiritual, undecided, atheist, cynic – is welcome!
Each class begins with a guided meditation followed by a talk explaining Buddhist teachings and how to apply them to one’s meditation practice and everyday life. There is always an opportunity to ask questions and discuss. Our atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. We offer weekly drop-in classes and family meditation, special workshops and community-organized social events.
