Thursday Evening Foundation Programme

    • meditation man in suit

NEW! This program begins with an open introduction May 16.

Drop in and find out what this program is all about and if it is for you!

Foundation Programme is an opportunity for students to deepen their understanding of Buddhism by making an ongoing commitment to join a weekly study group. These study classes provide a systematic presentation of Kadampa Buddhism to a group of students who also engage in paired and group discussion as part of the programme.

Foundation Study Programme requires a commitment to attend a whole section of a book (with class breaks during most school term breaks).

For more information, or to drop in and test out a class to see if this program is for you, please ask at reception or  and the FP Coordinator will contact you with information about the programme and will discuss with you when the next best opportunity will be to join the programme.
