Meditation Classes with Rick
Do you experience worry, stress, or anxiety in your life? Learn how to build the inner strength to deal with these unpleasant feelings and create the stability within to live in the moment. We will learn to create mental space and gain control over thoughts that cause us mental discomfort. Develop special ways of thinking that naturally increase self-confidence and inner peace. These positive habits of mind oppose the tendency of negative thinking and improve our capacity to find happiness within ourselves.
Covid precautions are being taken: please wear a mask, chairs are spaced out, and the teacher has been vaccinated.

A: Kadampa Meditation Center Washington is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers. Supporter donations and fees are used to rent or maintain facilities for these classes, and any surplus is donated to the International Temples Project. We make every effort to keep fees low and, for most classes and events, reduced rates are available to senior citizens and full-time students. If you would like to attend an event but are unable to afford the fee, please contact the Administrative Director at least one week in advance.
A: No, please feel free to drop in whenever you like. Attending the entire series of classes is highly beneficial, as each class builds on the next. However, each class is taught in such a way that you can derive value from attending even just once.
