What to Expect at Our General Program Classes
Open to All. Everyone Welcome.
KMC Long Island believes meditation should be accessible to everyone, especially busy, modern people, so we offer a variety of drop-in classes at our three locations, offered on weekdays, weeknights and weekends to accommodate as many types of schedules as possible. Pre-registration is not required, simply drop in at a class that’s convenient for you. For a nominal fee of $5, $10, or $15 (depending on class length), anyone from any background is welcome to attend a class and no one is turned away for a lack of funds.
When you arrive at a drop-in class, there will be someone from the center to greet you and accept your class admission fee. You can then take off your shoes (required before entering any of our meditation spaces) and make yourself comfortable on a chair or cushion. If you arrive early, please help yourself to a cup of tea or some water.
Our teachers usually start with a guided breathing meditation. Then they give a short teaching followed by a longer guided meditation and a short Q&A or discussion period, if time allows.
These classes are sometimes taught as a series, but each class stands on its own as a complete class. Drop-in classes are well-suited for people who are new to meditation, or new to the center, in general. They provide an easy and affordable way to get started with a regular meditation practice and become familiar with the center. Feel free to drop by anytime.
We look forward to meeting you!

The Best of Intentions: Learn to Meditate in 2018
There is so much scientific evidence these days showing the positive results of meditation: better health, faster healing, improved clarity and effectiveness, a more positive outlook, and more harmonious relationships. Even without these studies, we can discover the benefits quickly through our own experience. Meditation can also become the basis of our spiritual development, taking us to deeper and deeper levels of peace and freedom.
