Dharma Center exists to share the Dharma, the teachings of meditation and mindfulness, and to assist in the Awakening of those who wish to free themselves of suffering. Our meditation hall and community of members provides a sanctuary from the turbulent world, where students at all levels can deepen and refine their connection to Light.
Established in 1998, Dharma Center is based in the Rama Lineage and each teacher has earned the wisdom they share through their own experiences on the Path. Teachers offer their own style, which provides students the opportunity to find a teacher with whom they resonate. Rama, who taught meditation practice to thousands of Americans in the latter part of the 20th century, initiated an extremely diverse group of students into Buddhist practice. Dharma Center continues this tradition of diversity through its teachers. By drawing upon the wealth of spiritual teachings they received from Rama and other great masters from ancient times to the present, Dharma Center teachers offer an eclectic and unique approach to spiritual discovery.
Dharma Center is a privately owned, volunteer-based organization dedicated to spiritual growth. We are not affiliated with or financially supported by any other organization and rely completely on the money collected from class participants and members. We believe that self-discovery is not about idolizing some unobtainable ideal, but rather spiritual practice is about discovering our divine nature and becoming the highest, most authentic expression of Light possible. In short, the Path is about becoming who you really are.
Dharma Center works to make classes accessible to individuals from all walks of life, which is made possible due to our generous Members. To become a Member and enjoy the additional perks and special access of Dharma Center, visit our Membership page.

30 Second Meditation
Let your eyes soften and gaze at the ocean.
Let the sound of the ocean quiet your thoughts.
Let all distractions, both inner and outer, pass by like the rolling waves.
Rest in the stillness within you.
