Response to COVID-19


Difficult times are upon us. In response to this global event, AKBC is taking measures to continue to provide refuge through receiving Dharma teachings in a safe and practical way.

As such, we have made the proactive decision to temporarily close the Center, however, classes, retreats and pujas continue! You can enjoy Dharma and prayers from your home via live video streaming.

We are using Zoom for general program and foundation program classes, YouTube for Retreats and Facebook for chanted prayers. More details can be found on individual class, retreat and prayer pages with links.

How you can continue to receive Dharma teachings during this time…

Classes, Retreats & Pujas that are available:

  • Weekly Drop-in Meditation Classes
  • Mini Meditation Retreats
  • Foundation Program Classes
  • Weekly and Monthly Pujas
  • Friday Puja & Potluck
  • Public Talks
  • Community Outreach

As we continue to move through this changing situation, we will do our best to keep our schedule up-to-date. Please check back here regularly and sign up for our E-News if you are not already.

Wishing everyone good health and true happiness.
