Foundation Program Open House
Sunday, November 5th
2 - 4pm
Join us for a free introduction to the Foundation Program on November 5th from 2 - 4pm, where we will be beginning a new section of the extraordinary text, How to Understand the Mind.
Foundation Program is a tried and tested way to gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of Buddha’s teachings, maintain a daily meditation practice that is both focused and powerful, and make genuine spiritual progress. If you have been coming to classes regularly and have been getting a lot out of your General Program classes and feel you're ready to go a bit deeper with your study and practice - the systematic study of this essential Buddhist text on FP may be a perfect next step for you.
A Special Program
The Foundation Program is based on a clear structure that includes chanted prayers and guided meditation, teaching, student commitments, discussion, and teacher support. One of the main benefits for everyone is the building of a spiritual community within the class, which in turn fosters meaningful class discussion as well as mutual support among the class members. Everyone is welcome to this introduction to learn more.
