Raleigh Open House & Holiday Bazaar

The festive holiday season is fast upon us! Get started on your holiday gift shopping while enjoying the company of friends and peacefulness at our Raleigh Center.

If you ever wondered about Buddhism or meditation, this is a great opportunity to explore! The Won Buddhism Meditation Center in North Raleigh is located in a quiet wooded parcel of land in the Fall's Lake area.
