We are now able to stream our weekly classes via Zoom until we are able to open our physical location again.  Our first public class that will be available via Zoom will be Advice for a Happy Life at 10:30am on Sunday March 22nd.

Please visit the class links below for instructions on how to join the Zoom meetings.

For security reasons, we are asking people to register for each weekday class that is being streamed. So please make sure you are registered for each class you want to attend (e.g., Meditation 101) before attending.   If you register once for a class, you should be good for that class for the rest of the time we are streaming.


Kosala Center’s meditation classes are suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators. Everyone is welcome.

Our regular weekly drop-in classes are:

Classes run anywhere from half an hour to an hour and a half.

The general structure of the class:

  • Simple guided breathing meditation
  • Practical teaching on how to solve problems in daily life
  • Second guided meditation on the teaching topic
  • Brief discussion or Q & A

Attending the class

The classes are organized as short courses, usually spanning several weeks. You can attend the whole course or simply drop in whenever you can, as each class is self-contained. You do not need to book in advance, simply find a class that looks interesting to you and pay when you arrive.

If you would like more information or help, please contact us. Drop in for any of our weekly meditation classes in Carrboro.  Each class includes guided meditation, practical advice based on Buddhist wisdom, and time for discussion.

By training in meditation we will learn to develop inner peace, giving us the ability to stay happy and positive all the time, even in difficult circumstances. These classes are suitable for individuals of all levels of interest, from those who just wish to explore the practice of Buddhist meditation, to those who are interested in learning more about the rich spiritual traditions of Buddhism.  All classes are on a drop-in basis, with no need to have attended the previous classes in any given series.
