Welcome to Chicago Buddhist Meditation Group!

We are a Chicago meditation meetup group organized by lay practitioners. We meet weekly to support each other in our meditation practice and to study Buddhist teachings from diverse traditions. We welcome anyone – beginners and seasoned practitioners alike – who is interested in meditation or in learning more about Buddhism to join us. Sign up for our newsletter or just come and sit with us!

Chicago Buddhist Meditation Group is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
