SUNDAYS | 3–5PM
What is Foundation Program?
If you have been coming to drop-in meditation classes for a while and want to take your practice to the next level, Foundation Program could be your next step.
Foundation Program (FP) offers a structured and thorough approach to learning modern Buddhism and taking meditation to a deeper level. The program works like this:
- Study one book at a time, going through each section slowly
- Meditate each week on what we studied the previous week
- Discuss in pairs, as well as a group, to share and learn from each other.
FP is perfect if you are wishing to take the next step in deepening your practical experience of Buddha’s teachings. For the strength of the program, enrollment is required. If you are interested in joining, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Still not sure if you want to join? You are welcome to sit in on a couple of classes before committing to see if it’s for you.
On Feb 28, 2021 we will begin: Universal Compassion: Inspiring Solutions for Difficult Times
$65/month, includes Foundation Program classes, weekly drop-in meditation classes, and 50% off workshops & courses.
Teacher Training Program (TTP)
SUNDAYS | 3–5PM (combined with FP) and additional Teaching Skills classes once a month
The Teacher Training Program (TTP) is an in-depth systematic study of twelve subjects based on Buddha’s Sutra and Tantra teachings and the corresponding commentaries by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. TTP is designed for people who wish to train as authentic Dharma teachers. In addition to completing the study of twelve texts of Sutra and Tantra, the student is required to observe certain commitments with regard to behavior and way of life, and to complete a number of meditation retreats. This is an in-depth study program and not a drop-in class. Enrollment is required.
