Who We Are

Middle Way LA provides practical instruction for a vibrant, meaningful life infused with ethical integrity, compassion for others, mindful awareness and wisdom. The Center offers classes, grounded in the time-tested doctrines and practices found in the ancient Tibetan and Indian Sanskrit texts, for realizing deep peace within our modern lifestyle. Everyone is welcome to enjoy weekly yoga classes, guided meditations, in-depth study courses, community events and seasonal retreats. A wide variety of audio and video teachings are available in our Media library. All classes and events, unless otherwise noted, are offered by donation only.

Middle Way LA is part of a global network of Middle Way Centers from Asia to North America. The centers acknowledge, honor and are inspired by the beneficial guidelines found in the world’s authentic spiritual traditions. Each is presented with an emphasis on its relevance both for personal growth and transformation as well as for fostering a sense of responsibility for others. Our doors are open to everyone – religious or irreligious, affiliated or non-affiliated. We welcome all who come in the spirit of critical intelligence and tolerant open-mindedness, and who have a strong desire to alleviate and eventually totally overcome their own suffering and that of their fellow human beings.

We believe the purpose of a spiritual life is not to become better than others, but better for others. The Middle Way Centers are here to promote that vision.

We are a non-profit tax exempt (501c3) organization.
