These classes present Buddha's teachings in a practical and accessible way and are suitable for everyone. Classes are run as terms with a common theme, however each class is a stand-alone class so you don't need to start at the beginning of the term or even attend all the classes in a term, just drop in as you are able to. There's no need to book. The cost is $13 per class. Everyone is welcome.
Each class consists of a guided breathing meditation, a talk by the Teacher on an aspect of Buddhist practice or philosophy and a guided contemplative meditation. There is also an opportunity to ask questions at the end, either in class, or stay and have a cup of tea.
These classes are taught by Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Nampur.
