Mindfulness and Compassion

In recent decades, brain research in two fields, mindfulness and compassion, has shown that we have brains that can be changed. Mental exercises such as mindfulness training and meditation can strengthen qualities such as focus, awareness, compassion and the ability to manage our emotions.

Upcoming Courses

We have a great curriculum suited for everyone from beginners to experienced students. We also run retreats for those looking to deepen their practice.
You can join our drop-in our commit to a course. Or you can just drop in, hang out, and relax.


Our Buddhist courses and events aim at nourishing the development of compassion, wisdom, kindness, and true happiness in individuals of all ages. We offer courses, retreats, drop-ins and opportunities for group practice to fulfill the needs of both beginners and experienced practitioners. 


We welcome you to a modern meditation center in central Stockholm.
