Description of Organization
Long Beach Meditation’s mission is to provide a safe, nurturing place to learn and practice the healing art of meditation while emphasizing the profound teachings and practices that align with Buddha’s path to awakening. Long Beach Meditation is committed to transforming individuals, families, and communities by extending peace and compassion through the teachings of the Buddha and mindfulness practice.
In 2018, a grant in the amount of $5,000 was awarded to support the recruitment of a Guiding Teacher. The retirement of their Founding Teacher, Dr. Victor Byrd, sparked a crucial turning point where an experienced, determined and charismatic leader with extensive knowledge of the Dharma was determined to be deeply helpful to lead Long Beach Meditation in its next chapter of growth.
