      Our meditation classes are designed to give a broad introduction to Buddhist meditation, ideas, and practice. A typical class consists of two guided meditations, a teaching on a Buddhist topic, and optional class discussion. This class is open to everyone and is a perfect place to start if you are new to Buddhism and/or meditation, but can also form the basis for a systematic study of Buddhist practice. Drop-ins are welcome. Please come whenever you like!

      Classes take place at the Pittsburgh Friends Meetinghouse in Shadyside. Classes take place upstairs in the Fell Room, or sometimes in the Fox Room.
