HCZ offers programs for beginning and experienced meditators to help them reduce reactivity and navigate the difficulties of today’s stressful world. Open and accessible to all, these programs include beginning meditation instruction and workshops on mindfulness, Buddhist teachings, and ethics.

With global strife, political division and economic uncertainty, the climate crisis, and the pandemic, cultivating inner calm and tapping into inner wisdom is more critical than ever.
