Welcome to Jewel Heart Cleveland!

Our Tremont center offers experiential classes, workshops, and special events based on Gelek Rimpoche’s authentic and accessible Buddhist teachings. All classes include practice of both analytic and concentrated meditation. On most Sunday mornings, we offer the opportunity to see a live broadcast talk given by Rimpoche.

The Cleveland Chapter of Jewel Heart began in the late 1980′s, meeting in members’ homes and rented spaces. Since our move to Tremont in 2001, we have greatly expanded our schedule of classes and events. Our center includes a small store with books and other dharma items that is open during scheduled events, as well as a lending library with books, tapes and DVDs available to all.

Please take a look at our programs page or calendar for coming events. If you have questions that are not answered on this site, please call 216-687-1617 or email

Tantric Buddhism in both the Yoga and Anuttara Yoga traditions, takes a fivefold approach to enlightenment. This fivefold approach involves the integration of the energies and wisdoms (“mindfulness applications”) that are referred to as “the five buddha families.” The five are also linked to the five main chakra centers of the body, and thus an understanding of them is fundamental to the process of “easy enlightenment,” meaning the much-discussed “enlightenment in one lifetime.”
