Berkeley Mahasiddha CenterThe MahaSiddha Center is our residential meditation community and Dharma Center located in the heart of Berkeley. Just a few blocks from UC Berkeley, this house opened in December, 2005. It is home to 10 residents who host a weekly public meditation class, daily morning meditation practice, retreats, health courses and teachings.
Residents practice meditation together each morning. Throughout the rest of the day, residents carry on with their ordinary lives, attending to jobs, families and their creative endeavors. The daily practice of meditation is a life-transforming experience. Yet maintaining that commitment is not always easy when our lives and schedules are not oriented around sitting meditation. Our residential program is oriented around daily group meditation practice for working people with full schedules. Residents meet five days a week for group practice, individual practice is pursued on the weekends. See more events in this venue
