About our classes
The weekly classes offer practical solutions to everyday problems based on Buddhist meditation techniques.
They are dynamic classes combining analysis of problems with exploration of the mind and practical meditation-based solutions.
Using the Mindfulness Toolkit, the classes begin with training in basic mindfulness and then show how to apply mindfulness to practical situations in and out of meditation.
The methods taught are based on Buddha’s teachings on the mind but can be practised by anyone, Buddhist or not.
There are no physical exercises or special postures involved. Participants sit on chairs to meditate.
These classes are suitable for all levels of experience and everyone is welcome.
This eBook Modern Buddhism – The Path of Compassion and Wisdom, in three volumes, is being distributed freely at the request of the author Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
Modern Buddhism is perfectly suited for inspiring those seeking solutions within Buddhism to problems of everyday life, as well as for encouraging practitioners of all faiths to deepen their understanding and practice of the spiritual path.
