According to Buddha all diseases and suffering, mental and physical, are caused by our delusions such as anger. Normally these delusions feel deeply ingrained, but through connecting to Medicine Buddha we can experience the pure nature of our mind, and heal ourselves of these inner diseases.

This empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation during which we will receive the blessings of Medicine Buddha, the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy. More Information.


Weekly Classes at Dharmachakra Buddhist Center

The purpose of these classes is to gain personal experience of inner peace through the practice of meditation. This month we will focus on meditations to develop a kind heart as well as learn a profound healing meditation.


In this series learn basic Buddhist view, intention, and action, and how to follow the Buddhist way of life in the modern world. This class is perfect for anyone interested in Buddhism and meditation. Thursdays at 7pm with Kadam Michelle.


Each week learn one of the twenty-one Buddhist meditation practices presented in the New Meditation Handbook. These meditations are actual methods to control our mind and experience lasting inner peace. Fridays, 10am

Many people are looking for a safe  and tranquil place to bring their spiritual beliefs and to work towards peace, happiness, and kindness for all beings throughout the world.
