  • About This Event

    On Wednesday, January 8th, 6:30 – 8 pm, we will be holding a special introduction to our Foundation Program in meditation. You are invited to attend this free introductory evening and subsequent free Foundation Program class on January 15th (6:30 – 8:30 pm).

    What is Foundation Program?

    The Foundation Program course gives 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.

    On Wednesday, January 15th (for those who would like to enroll in the program), we will begin to study a new book called How To Understand the Mind. This book offers us deep insight into our mind, and shows how an understanding of its nature and functions can be used practically in every day experience to improve our lives. Part 1 is a practical guide to developing and maintaining a light, positive mind. Part 2 describes different types of mind in detail, revealing the depth and profundity of the Buddhist understanding of the mind. It concludes with a detailed explanation of meditation.

    The Foundation Program 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. The duration of study of the book How To Understand Our Mind will be approximately eight-twelve months.

    Cost of Foundation Program

    After the free introduction and sampler class, enrolling on Foundation Program (FP) costs $65 per month. FP Membership includes the weekly FP class and free access to all our drop-in classes at KMC Florida. FP Members also receive discounts on many of our meditation retreats.

    Register today to attend our no obligation free introductory class on January 8th and subsequent sampler class on September 19th. We look forward to meeting you!
