Join us to learn the basics of creating a sacred space in your own home. Learn how to set up an authentic Buddhist shrine along with methods to increase the power of this personal place of refuge.
To establish a consistent meditation practice, it helps to have a quiet place for contemplation and relaxation. This class is an opportunity to understand the inspiring effects of setting up a shrine in your home that will help you to focus your energy for spiritual practice. We will explore the meaning behind the symbols and sacred objects, as well as the practice of water offerings, prayer, and prostrations. These crucial elements of regular practice help us to experience the joy and purpose of meditation.

Discounted pricing available for Standard/Plus members. Members please log in before booking.
