Guided Meditation at the Senior Center

meditation-paintingFrom Nikki Dodd ’15:

Come open your hearts and minds on Friday as we span generations and meditate with seniors at the senior center. In the theme of Valentine’s day, this meditation — led by the magnificent Katie McLaughlin — will focus on love, friendship and our community. This practice is open to all levels and experiences with meditation and will give us some time to reflect inwards on a day that focuses on external demonstrations of love. Afterwards, we will have time with the seniors to talk, share stories, and get perspectives often out of our reach on campus.

Buddhist House Meditation Schedule


Take some time from your busy life and quiet your mind. Buho will be hosting open meditations every weekday at 9am and Monday and Thursday at 6pm.  Come meet some great people, revel in the present moment and maybe work a bit on that goal of reaching enlightenment.  You might even get a complimentary cup of tea.
