WHO WE ARE

Located in the heart of Providence, RI, we are a Kadampa Buddhist Center dedicated to offering meditation classes that are based in the ancient wisdom of Buddhism. We inspire positive personal transformation by offering clear and practical instructions intended to help busy people integrate meditation into modern life. Our doors are open to everyone.

AKBC offers an open and relaxed environment in which to learn about and practice meditation and modern buddhism, and to connect and engage with like-minded individuals in a casual and caring setting. Classes, study programs, workshops, and retreats are offered on a regular basis. Multiple class-cards and memberships are available. Volunteer opportunities are available.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING

Just bring yourself. No mat, no special clothes. Everything we do is based on identifying those negative states of mind that cause suffering for ourself and others and how to replace them with positive ones that cause us to be happy which in turn impacts others. You have the option of sitting on the ground with a mat and cushion or in a chair to meditate — the choice is yours.
