The Compassion Center’s primary reason for existing is to offer Meditation classes. These classes are intended for people who are specifically interested in Meditation as well as people who are searching for alternative methods to deal with one or more issues in their lives.
Why Was The Compassion Center Created?
The Compassion Center was created out of the need to provide a facility that would offer an alternative solution to people who have various issues in their lives that they wish to address. These issues include:
- Anger and Aggressiveness
- Drug and Alcohol Dependence
- Grief Due to the Loss of a Loved One
- Problems Getting to Sleep
- Difficulty in Focusing the Mind
- Constant Chatter in Our Heads
- Inability to Stay in the Moment
For some, addressing these issues through “conventional” methods has not worked (or only worked temporarily). Meditation can be successfully used to treat all of these issues and much more.
When Are Classes Offered?
Please view our Calendar of Events for the most up to date listing of Meditation classes and special events.
One of our goals is to offer ongoing meditation classes throughout the week during periods that work for seniors, teens, adults who require flexible schedules and adults who work during the day.

What Is The Significance Behind the Name The Compassion Center?
Dan Globus came to understand through his meditation practice that one of the keys in his personal growth was to learn to have and show great compassion. This compassion is not simply meant for others. It is also meant for the one being that many of us forget about…ourselves. For some, it is easy to ask for forgives and to give forgiveness to others. However, for some, is very difficult for us to have compassion for ourselves. Dan believes that we must learn to develop great compassion for others and ourselves.
