The Foundation Programme

07:00 - 09:00 pm

Foundation Programme (FP) provides an opportunity to engage in a more in-depth and structured approach to the study and practice of meditation and Buddhism. Through following traditional methods we can gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of Buddha’s teachings, develop a powerful meditation practice, and bring about a positive transformation in our mind.
Foundation Programme is for those who have had some experience of the GP classes and wish to deepen their experience and practice of Buddhist teachings. Classes include guided meditation, teaching and group discussion, all aimed at enabling students to develop their daily practice and support each other to become skilful meditation practitioners. Everyone is welcome.
Joining the Foundation Programme involves enrolling to study one book (or section of a book), attending all the classes and sitting an exam at the end of the book or section. Each class consists of chanted prayers, a guided meditation, teaching and discussion. You are welcome to attend a class before enrolling and you can join at any time.

Current programme
From April 2023 the programme will be studying the book “The New Eight Steps to Happiness” by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. The class is taught by Gen Kelsang Tilopa.
