Retreats, Talks & Events

At Kadampa Meditation Center Bloomington, we offer talks, retreats and events. Each of them approach different aspects of bringing meditation deeper into our understanding and daily experience. 

Once a month, we have a Saturday Morning Retreat from 10am-1pm. Then later in the month, we offer a Friday Night Talk from 6:30pm which is part of our weekend retreat series to bridge a silent morning retreat on Saturdays from 10am - 1pm. All our retreats are designed for people who may just beginning meditation or for those who wish to deepen their meditation practice. 

We offer more in-depth day retreats on Saturdays which are designed for people who have been coming and have a basis of understanding of Buddhist teachings. These retreats are Saturdays from 9 am - 5 pm.
