Lama Lakshey Zangpo currently provides meditation instruction on both Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings. The Wednesday night series is offered in cycles. These teachings are open to all and cover a variety of meditation topics. 


Wednesdays are a great introduction to meditation and a profound way to get to know Lama Lakshey and his teaching style. Sunday teachings are ongoing and consist of one hour of traditional Buddhist meditation practice followed by an hour of meditation guidance and instruction. 


Classes Online and at the Wisdom Center

Wednesday Night Series:  6:00 pm   May and June 2023 
                       (please note there is no session 5/17)

Tranquility Meditation: Lama Lakshey's Wed night series continues through the months of May and June. For this upcoming series, Lama Lakshey has chosen the topic of Tranquility Meditation. Each week in the series will cover the overall theme of Tranquility meditation and within this framework Lama Lakshey will teach both Shamatha (calm abiding) & Vipassana (insight) meditation according to the Vadrayana tradition.


The Wed night series is a hybrid event, if you are in the San Francisco Bay Area feel free to join with us at TMC Santa Cruz or also you can join online. If you register for the online event you also have access to the recordings for the series while the series is active.


Given that this topic is taught in stages of experiential development, Lama Lakshey recommends that attendees attempt to either join for the live session or listen to the audio of all the cycles.

Sunday Series: 9-11 am 

Chod practice: 9:00 - 10:00 am
Dharma teaching: 10:00 -11:00 am
