The Buddhist Place provides a welcoming environment for people to learn and practice the teachings of the Buddha. Events are organized to further Dharma practice and increase awareness of Dharma in the community. Activities include regular meditation and discussion meetings, and Dharma teaching by visiting monastic and lay teachers from different Buddhist traditions.
The Buddhist Place operates through the volunteered time of members. There are monthly planning meetings to oversee the day-to-day operations. We invite your participation at the meetings to plan and organize Buddhist Place events.

The Buddha told us to see the way things are and let go of our clinging to them.
Take this feeling of letting go as your refuge. — Ajahn Chah
