All Ages

Foundation Programme (FP) offers us the opportunity to receive the oral transmission of Buddha's teachings and their commentaries, to study systematically, be guided in meditation and discuss Dharma with spiritual friends. It will naturally and quickly build our confidence to apply Dharma in daily life and will joyfully turn our initial insights into actual realisations of Dharma.

- There are two classes every Sunday from 4pm - 8pm ( 4pm - 5:45pm, 30 minute break, 6:15pm - 8pm )
- Each class includes guided meditations, oral transmission of the text, practical teachings and time for questions and answers
- The class also engages in group and paired discussion to help deepen their understanding of the material

We are currently studying the book The New Heart of Wisdom. Classes are taught by Resident Teacher and Buddhist nun Kelsang Shechog.

If you are interested in trying out the Foundation Programme please contact Lachpa to arrange your free trial classes. Lachpa can be contacted by emailing - education@meditateinwellington.org
