Foundation Programme – Mondays 7pm -9pm
Introduction with Gen Kelsang Yankyi – September 26th, 7pm – 9pm – contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
If you wish to deepen your experience of Buddha’s teachings and find meaning and lasting happiness in your modern life, you will enjoy the Foundation Program (FP). Joining FP involves enrolling for a section of the book, attending all the classes if at all possible.
Each class consists of short chanted prayers, a guided meditation, teaching and discussion. The classes are systematic and interactive and students will find that their knowledge and wisdom grows week by week as a result.
The oral transmission of the book, combined with teachings, guided meditations and discussion, deepens our understanding as well as our confidence to apply Dharma in daily life. By doing this consistently, we will be able to turn our initial insights into actual realizations of Dharma.
The classes are similar in format and depth to college-level classes and the programme is based on a systematic study of six Kadampa Buddhist texts.
Committing to a regular study programme studying in a group with like-minded people you can benefit from the support of a spiritual community to energize and sustain your spiritual life.
There are 3 ways to participate according to your circumstances.
- Join in person
- Join online live via zoom**
- Join as a correspondence student and watch the class at a time of your choosing each week.
** to attend online you must live within the catchment area of the Centre and have a valid reason for being unable to attend the Centre in person, such as personal disability or long-distance travel
