This class is open to everyone who wishes to deepen their practice and experience of Modern Kadampa Buddhism. Through in-depth study and practise, it helps us close the gap between the inspiring teachings we hear at the Centre and practising them in our daily life. We learn how to integrate all the meditation practises and wisdom advice from Buddha into our normal daily life. In this way we gradually find a deep inner peace and happiness in our lives.
Monday Study Class offers a structured approach to learning Buddhist meditation through the study of the book Modern Buddhism and classes consist of Prayers for Meditation, guided meditations, teachings and discussion.
You can register as a Study Program Member or pay $15/class.
