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.

Scroll down or check the calendar for our upcoming events.
