Waltham Buddhist Meditation Group


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 here 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, we will be teaching on lojong (mind training). We will be using the book “The Practice of Lojong: Cultivating Compassion through Training the Mind” by Traleg Rinpoche. If you are new to lojong feel free to read any sections that interest you and contemplate them.  You may wish to listen to talks we gave on Lojong: Cultivating Compassion in February and April 2015.

Joseph Crane will teach our first class on lojong on Sep 21. Please purchase the book and read the Introduction for the first class.

First Parish in Waltham, a Unitarian Universalist Welcoming Congregation invites you to visit their website and learn about their many events and activities.
