Guided Meditation & Modern Buddhism
We offer everyone, at any level, the opportunity to learn to meditate and transform their life with Modern Buddhist teachings. Each class begins with a guided meditation followed by a talk explaining Modern 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 meditation classes, frequent Saturday workshops and community-organized social events.
We are 100% volunteer-run, member-supported non-profit meditation center. 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!

The benefits of meditation at VMC:
It’s much more than mindfulness.
You’ve probably heard: Meditation reduces stress. It improves concentration. It benefits your health. It can even slow aging.
But, amazingly, that’s just the beginning—at least if you meditate at Vajradhara Meditation Center. Our meditation practices are based on a lineage of wisdom that has liberated beings from suffering for thousands of years, long before there was “an app for that.”
VMC members are your friends, neighbors and fellow Brooklynites who have found these teachings to be just as transformative today. Stop in to one of our many classes and see if they work for you too.
Our weekly classes are a great place to start! A typical class includes teachings, guided meditation and a Q&A session.
