Courses

Most people find it far easier to learn anything with the support and guidance of experienced teachers in a structured program. Our weekly classes help you build, sustain and deepen your daily meditation practice. They provide an ongoing path of learning and personal growth. Classes are hands-on, experiential and include dynamic interaction in a group setting. Organized according to the student’s level of meditation experience, our courses are designed to help you get the most out of your meditation practice in the shortest possible time.

Enrollment includes access to recordings of every meeting so that participants can listen again and again to the talks, discussions and guided meditations. You’ll never miss a class even if you are out of town. Participate onsite or online.

Most courses are paired with a companion one-day retreat to give participants the opportunity to integrate their skills and learning in a deeper way.

Retreats

Retreats are the best way to accelerate progress in meditation.

One-Day Retreats are designed to help participants stabilize their skills and deepen their practice. Tailored to level of experience, they provide an appropriate degree of challenge and learning.

Longer Retreats are for those interested in catalyzing deeper transformation. We host weekend programs and 5-Day residential meditation retreats every year. Complete immersion in the retreat environment 24/7 increases the process of taming, transformation and awakening.

Testimonials

I’ve listened to a lot of Buddhist podcasts, but there was something very valuable about actually being in a room in person with a teacher and other students. I liked the guided meditations, but found the lectures the most valuable part of the class.Participant in the beginners’ course
I recommend ClearLight programs without reservation. The structured and progressive nature of the courses helps one to develop a sound practice of mindfulness without promoting any particular religious bias. The programs can augment any spiritual practice.Teri Callahan, Financial and Business Analyst
The McBrides are extremely experienced and able teachers with decades of training and practice in an illustrious lineage. This stands in stark contrast to much of the mindfulness instruction available these days.Past Course Participant
