About Us

For many people, the most obvious feature of the BMLS is that we are a unique and dynamic approach to an engaged contemporary Buddhist community. Those who know us can also see clearly our passionate desire to live the way of the Buddha and to practice the Dharma authentically and intensely. Our entire history has been characterized by our efforts to translate the essentials of tradition into ways of living that are enlightening, liberating and transforming for us today.  The question is how are we called to live here and now? We believe that we have embraced and harmonized with the dynamic insights and spiritual treasures of the classical Buddhist tradition all the more deeply by continuously distilling its wisdom in the light of knowledge and experience that is readily available to us

The primary service of the BMLS is to educate and facilitate individual practitioners and communities in the Dharma, the way of Mindful Living. We provide guidance through negative conditioning to all who are seeking a true sense of freedom, joy and adventure in life, as well as those in great suffering and distress. Our foundation is the universal teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha, the historical founder of Buddhism in the 5th century BCE. The student is carefully guided in understanding the nature of the True Self and assisted in the practice of liberation from conditioning. We serve these ends through monthly retreats, daily liturgical meditation, individual and family counseling and direction, Zen arts programs, mindfulness movement classes and community action groups.
