Foundation Programme is the perfect next step for those who have enjoyed attending our drop in meditation classes and wish to deepen their understanding and experience of Buddhist meditation. Join us for an Introduction to start a new section of 'Joyful Path of Good Fortune', where we will explore basic Buddhist view including topics such as rebirth and karma, and how to apply our understanding of these to improve our life. With resident teacher Gen Kelsang Drolkyi.
On this course we will learn that we don’t need to be hurt by past events, difficult feelings, or what other people think and say. Buddhist teachings show us that we are not limited by our past or by other people's perceptions. We can learn to increase confidence in ourself and in our ability to live the life we want.
Buddha’s teachings on the law of karma give us a clear and practical explanation on why things happen the way they do, and how we can begin to change our experiences from not so great to fantastic. Or at the very least, better. Rather than seeking happiness, we learn to create it. Rather than running from unhappiness, we learn to abandon its causes. Understanding karma puts us in the driver’s seat of our own life!
