Heart of Awareness

Heart of Awareness Buddhist Community and Practice Center

Ajijic, Jalisco


Some Heart of Awareness activities and programs are available via the ZOOM streaming platform.

If you are unable to join us in person, you can participate virtually.

Click here to join the Wednesday afternoon session from 4:00 – 5:00 PM and the dharma talk and discussion that follows.

Your microphone will automatically be muted when you join. Please leave it muted until the bell rings at the end of the practice period.

Generally, there will be time for discussion following the dharma talk (live or video).  You are welcome to participate in the conversation.

We begin each practice period by honoring the Three Refuges:

** I take refuge in the Buddha; awakened heart and mind.
** I take refuge in the Dharma; the teachings and practices that lead to freedom from suffering.
** I take refuge in the Sangha; practicing with others inspired by the potential for freedom from suffering.

The bell is rung to end the practice period, and is followed by a dedication of merit:

** I dedicate the merit of my practice to all beings; may each being experience freedom from suffering.
