Meditations of Innate Wisdom and Compassion as developed by Lama John Makransky are guided meditations. Everyone is welcome to these sessions – those with little or no meditation experience, as well as those with much experience who want a fresh approach to their deepest nature. Each group has an e-mail contact for more information or questions about the practice. There is no charge, but donations are gratefully accepted in support of this work.

Please note: In the time listings for group meetings, we have used the following abbreviations: ET for Eastern Time, CT for Central Time, MT for Mountain Time, PT for Pacific Time, and CET for Central European Time.
