Dhammakaya Meditation Center Silicon Valley

DMCSV or Dhammakaya Meditation Center Silicon Valley is a non-profit 501 (C) (3) organization. We began meeting in 2010 to help people learn to journey inward to find true happiness. We have been helping people find peace within themselves for over 10 years. Currently, the center is located in the beautiful and tranquil town of Morgan Hill, California. 

We promote meditation, peace, spiritual awareness, and harmony to humankind. Our meditation sessions are conducted by Dhammakaya practitioners who have dedicated themselves to teaching meditation and dhamma (the reality of life) to restore tranquility to the world through inner peace. 

At Morgan Hill, we meet every week for a Basic Meditation Practice. New meditators and experienced meditators are welcome to attend and benefit from the class without making an appointment. There is no fee required, but we welcome a donation for facilities. 

Besides weekly Basic Meditation Practice, we also host meditation events, retreats, and activities off-site so that more people in Northern California can learn and enjoy the benefits of Dhammakaya meditation.

Our door is always open to new members, no matter their meditation experience level. We are proud to bring together people from all over Silicon Valley and beyond. Come join us at our next event — we’d love to share all that Dhammakaya Meditation Center Silicon Valley has to offer.

Our Meditation Center is a devoted community made up of enthusiastic individuals who enjoy practicing Dhammakaya technique of meditation. You’re welcome to browse our site to learn more, and if what we’re doing resonates with you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
