Drop-in and Online Classes

Drop-in classes are a great way to learn more about Buddhism, meditation, and DRBU.

  • Classes are suitable for beginners or experienced practitioners.
  • Drop-in classes are open, free to the public, and no registration is required.
  • Many of the classes are also streamed online.
  • We host several retreats every year. View our upcoming meditation and recitation retreats.
