Foundation Programme in Meditation & Buddhism (Brighton)
Our Kadampa Buddhism study programmes give people the opportunity to engage in a more in-depth and structured approach to the practices of meditation and Buddhism. Through following traditional methods of study 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. The programmes can be joined at any point and not necessarily at the beginning of a new course. The Foundation Programme is for those people who wish to build a solid foundation and experience of Buddhist teachings – including karma, life after death, impermanence, loving kindness, compassion and wisdom. This year we are running two Foundation Programme courses, giving people the flexibility to choose whichever is more suitable for you.
The Teacher of Foundation Programme
The study programmes at Bodhisattva KMC are taught by our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Thekchen. He is a close disciple of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and has been practising Kadampa Buddhism for approximately 23 years. He is much loved for his warmth and humour, and he shares with us a great wealth of knowledge, insight and wisdom.
How to attend & free taster classes
If you are interested in joining Foundation Programme you can attend two free taster sessions. To attend a taster session please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to continue after the taster sessions you must enrol on the programme.
The FP programme costs £20 per month (or you can invest in a Centre Card, which, in addition to your chosen study programme, includes all our classes, courses and retreats, for £38 per month).
The duration of Foundation Programme is approximately 6 – 12 months depending on the book that is being studied.
