Located in the heart of Chelsea, Kadampa Meditation Center provides meditation classes and teachings throughout NYC and the greater New York area, including Brooklyn, Queens, New Jersey, Upper West and East Sides of Manhattan. KMC-NYC is part of the Kadampa Centers world-wide.
We hold ongoing General Program classes on Sunday and Tuesday mornings, and evening classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. These classes are accessible to all levels of practitioners, offering meditations as well as practical "wisdom-advice" for how best to navigate our sometimes overwhelming lives. We also offer monthly introductory classes, Awakening the Heart, and How to Meditate, as well as a variety of weekend workshops and retreats.

Free Drop-in MeditationAbout Our Classes
Taught by qualified Western teachers, the meditation classes are very easy to understand and apply to our daily lives. The classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners, and emphasize how to meditate and practice in our NY urban environment.
Meditation is a simple yet profound method to improve the quality of our lives and develop inner peace. Through following very simple, practical instructions we can learn to let go of the causes of our pain and dissatisfaction and to gain the inner peace and clarity we seek. We offer a wide range of classes from basic introductions to Buddhist meditation, applying Buddha’s teachings to daily life issues such as anger and improving relationships, to comprehensive study programs of Buddhist view, meditation and action. Everyone is welcome.
