about Ashoka

Incorporating the teachings of the Buddha into our lives nourishes what the Dalai Lama calls "our inner dimension" and encourages the practice of peace and generosity.  Ashoka courses encourage reflection, contemplation and application. w

Ashoka courses offer a rich mixture of reading, listening (audio), viewing (video), contemplation, and meditation. Our courses guide and encourage you to reflect on and apply what you are learning.

meditation in action

Beyond being a meditative vehicle for spiritual liberation, practice can be a vehicle for social and political change. We believe that individual and social transformation go hand-in-hand. Ashoka will teach and encourage meditation in action—engaging the world with wisdom and ethical action. btn
