Jewel Heart was founded in Ann Arbor in 1988. Since then, we have been privileged to receive Gelek Rimpoche’s teachings on a regular basis, as well as to host other preeminent teachers and scholars in Tibetan Buddhism.
In 2008, we were honored when His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama accepted our invitation to teach in Ann Arbor and inaugurated our spacious new location at 1129 Oak Valley Drive.
Throughout the year, we offer retreats, courses, guest speakers, workshops, and talks geared to help individuals bring peace, joy, and understanding into their lives and the lives of others, all based on the authentic and accessible teachings of Gelek Rimpoche.
On a regular basis we hold film nights, a book group, a knitting group, tai chi classes, and community events, such as potlucks, a community garden, and fun-raisers. We are also involved in outreach activities, providing classes in mindfulness meditation to prisoners and living will workshops offered by Jewel Heart Health Center and Community Hospice.
The Jewel Heart Store, located on site, sells books, transcripts, Tibetan rugs, and dharma objects. Our location also has a main assembly hall, multiple rooms for courses, kitchen and dining facilities, and green space with a pond.
Please feel free to join us on Sunday mornings, when we offer guided concentrated meditation, teachings with Gelek Rimpoche, followed by tea, cookies, and conversation, and guided White Tara meditation.
