  • About This Event

    Our Kadampa Buddhism study programs give 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. The programs can be joined at any point and not necessarily at the beginning of a new course. The Teacher Training 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 and who wish to become qualified Kadampa Buddhist Teachers.
