Welcome!

The Waltham Buddhist Meditation Group provides space for new and experienced practitioners of meditation to practice together.  Group and individual instruction in shamatha (mindfulness) meditation is provided.

Our Meetings

We meet every Thursday night at 7 p.m. in the chapel of First Parish in Waltham, 50 Church Street at the corner of School St. You may enter the chapel from the parking lot on the corner of School St. and Church St., or if the chapel door is locked, use the door to the left of that.

If meditation is cancelled due to weather, we will post a notice on this page in red.

Our Teachings

Meditation instruction is offered at 7:00 p.m. at the beginning of the sitting period when new people are present. Class begins at 8 p.m. Newcomers are welcome. Please see Introduction for more information.

This fall and winter, we are covering the topic of lojong (mind training), using the book “The Practice of Lojong: Cultivating Compassion through Training the Mind” by Traleg Rinpoche. To review the content of previous lessons, please see Module 20: Lojong. 

On Jan 25, we will have a guided meditation on compassion practice, with discussion at the end.
Michael Levin.
