Teachers open the door. It is your choice to follow the path of enlightenment or keep living the life of ignorance


Buddha taught that all our problems stem from our delusional minds which in turn formed an ego or a “false I” from beginingless time. For us to overcome this, the only method is meditation.  Our centre offers guided group meditation as well as private meditation courses.


A blessing is an attempt to contact and share that which is good, a connectedness with goodness itself and to invite this “energy” into one’s life.

Private Sessions

If you are still searching for that one person who will change your life, look in the mirror.  Through private sessions with Gyalten Nyima you will discover a heightened sense of your purpose and journey.  We offer private sessions in meditation and Buddhist studies.

Buddhist Studies

You don’t have to be weird or a Buddhist or sitting on top of a mountain in India to derive benefits of studying Buddhism.  Gain insight and understand the mental state of happiness, learn to identify and defuse sources of negative emotion and to cultivate emotional states like compassion to improve personal and societal well-being.
