Raleigh Won Buddhism Meditation Center

The Won Buddhism Meditation Center in North Raleigh sits in a quiet wooded parcel of land in the Fall's Lake area. Join us at 2816 Pleasant Union Church Rd. for meditation.  Teachers (Rev. WonGong, Rev. Ginger and lay teachers) support all levels of practice with gentle instruction and dharma talks. We have some cushions and chairs available or you may bring your own. No experience is necessary and walk-ins are welcome. Come and explore something calm and special within you.


Dharma & meditation - Sunday evenings, 5:00 - 6:30 pm

Our Sunday program includes meditation in many forms: movement, sitting, lying down, and chanting. This program incorporates contemplation and discussion on a dharma teaching facilitated by experienced and compassionate teachers. 

Please note that our Sunday Dharma & Meditation sessions (5 PM) will continue regardless of holidays.

Every Thursday evening, 7:00 – 8:15 pm

Come and restore yourself: explore Qigong movement to relax your body and learn to sit in silent peace and loving compassion.It is an empowering blessing to be able to sit in our inner calm, and close our day in meditation. All are welcome.

For the first three Thursdays in November 2018, we are going to dig into the three essentials of meditation:  body, breath, and thoughts.

  • November 1: Posture Basics for Meditation

  • November 8: Fun Breathing Techniques for Meditation

  • November 15: What Shall We Do with Our Thoughts?

These three sessions will be perfect for both beginners and seasoned practitioners. Come and immerse yourself in this practical guidance before the busy holiday season begins.

Important Change in Schedule!

Starting on Thanksgiving (Nov. 23rd), Thursday evening meditation will take a winter vacation through the end of January.   We will start again in February with a 4-week Qigong Workshop—the first class will be on February 7th at 7:00 PM. (February’s Qigong Workshop fee: $30-50 for the full 4 weeks.) No one will be turned away for lack of funds—please contact us for scholarship opportunities.

All are welcome to nurture insight and equanimity here. Please arrive 5 minutes early to enjoy our Qi-gong exercise. Loose-fitting clothing is highly recommended.  Before the session, you are welcome to a meditative stroll in the Temple woods. Our Temple is completely self-supported through your love offerings. We appreciate your generosity.
