I volunteer at the Sakya Monastery in my 'neighborhood', and host meditation retreats occasionally. I would recommend looking up their website and contacting any liaison about any questions or concerns you may have. Some of the more common questions might include:

Do they have an open visit, or do they host specific sessions
What to wear to a meditation
Courteous conduct
Acceptable charitable donations (where necessary/if there is an instructor)

Hope this points you in the right direction, Fires. Let us all know how things go if you do visit!

The experience is worth it.

A Jedi uses the Force for nothing, and... for everything.

I went to a Buddhist temple once (not sure if temple is the correct terminology :P) ..they have open meditations certain days of the week.. I was actually a little turned off from Buddhism by this visit. although it was about a year ago and I was in a very weird state then.. I sat for the half of the meditation then there was a break where we could go talk to some head monk dude for a few minutes.. and I asked him some weird questions.. one answer he gave me was striking. I asked him what he thought of inner visions one might attain in a meditative state and he said there was a word in the Buddhist philosophy that roughly translated into something like "demonic inspirations".. he said that at the core of Buddhism (atleast whatever school they practice there) they were seeking for the opposite of that which is the void space.. they essentially believe that all we see in the physical world and even visions we may have are merely illusions and that the ultimate reality and what we should attain for is nothingness.. this kind of bummed me out..hah I guess I was hoping he would tell me about how he trips out and chills with Buddha and dragons all the time.. then as I was leaving the meditators had began to chant and I don't remember exactly what was being said but it sent shivers down my spine so I just left... heh but that is just one biased opinion.. there are infinite paths that, in my opinion, point to the same truth. Buddhism is cool and there are many schools within so it's not a bad idea to check it out and see how it resonates with you
