Help Meditate Santa Fe find a home.

What Is It? -  We started a meditation studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  We started by sub-leasing a yoga studio in town and we have been holding free meditation classes that are open to the public.  The project began in June, 2018.

We teach basic meditation techniques in a style that is accessible to people from a Western/American culture. We often meditate to recorded music, some of which was composed for that purpose. We give a basic introduction to Buddhism for Westerners that seeks to minimize obscure terminology and while being respectful of other traditions, we seek to minimize cultural artifacts and rituals that may not be as relevant in American society.  We emphasize a meditation practice and spiritual study for people who lead busy lives, who are seeking inner peace and greater self-realization, while living and working in the world.

Who’s Involved? – Dharma and Maitri are a husband and wife who are longtime residents of Santa Fe. Our techniques and approach to practice come from American Buddhism, a modern, non-theistic interpretation of various Buddhist traditions and other teachings. We have personally been practicing meditation and mindfulness for over 20 years.

What we need – We now have a permanent location for our practice hall.  In the previous setup, we were not able to decorate the room in our own style, since the walls were covered with yoga posters and our hours of usage of the hall were constrained by the yoga class schedule.  We are working on building out our website , Facebook page and other promotional media.  We estimate a budget of $20,000 will be needed for the first year of operations, including renovations, advertising, sound system and supplies. 

Your generous support will help us bring stress reduction, inner peace, spiritual growth and personal happiness to our students who are navigating their lives in challenging times.  We have found these qualities arise naturally when one adopts a consistent meditative practice and incorporates it into daily life.

Namaste,

Dharma & Maitri



UPDATE -  Our Journey So Far...

We had to leave the yoga studio last August when the owner went out of business. After a brief hiatus, we opened our own space in November, on the South side of town. We are holding public meditation classes twice a week, and are taking trips with our students to power places in the nearby desert. We are also planning collaborative events in 2019 with other teaching centers. We have already had the opportunity to host several workshops offered by guest teachers, and there are still more to come!  We are excited to welcome our friends from Dharma Center in San Diego in October. We are off to a great start and are grateful for your support!
