“My wish is to help all beings, and I hope that my good intentions will be like a little spark that ignites the fire of compassion within your heart.”

── Meditation Master JinBodhi

Make Our Community Better

Dear Bodhi Meditation Supporters,

In the blink of an eye, the 2018 season of Thanksgiving is upon us again. Bodhi Meditation sincerely thanks you for your support and continued partnership!

Bodhi Meditation’s 10 years in the Bay Area would not have been possible without your continued love and support. Since its inception, Bodhi Meditation has adhered to the mission of Meditation Master JinBodhi “to help people achieve health and happiness”, and is committed to spreading love through compassion-based meditation classes that are easy to learn and high effective in daily practice.  Our programming includes free or low cost meditation courses, educational events, and community services for the general public. Bodhi Meditation has changed the health and life of many people by radically improving their physical, mental, and emotional quality of life. Thus, we aim to build a healthy and happy local and global community.

At a time when the pace of life in the Bay Area is accelerating, and in the midst of various natural and man-made disasters, Bodhi Meditation is determined to provide a compassionate, tolerant, and peaceful place for meditation in the Bay Area. Looking to the future, Bodhi Meditation in the Bay Area will establish a more efficient and systematic management and donor feedback system. We will be starting new programs to integrate Bodhi Meditation methods into the life and work of people in the Bay Area, so that more institutions and individuals will have the opportunity to learn and benefit from meditation.

You are our partners and supporters, who have cheered us on and walked with us hand in hand.

Looking to the future, we have the unwavering intention to create a local and global community that is compassionate, tolerant, giving, healthy, and happy.  We hope you walk hand in hand with us on this journey!
