Foundation Programme

Starting January 2025 (date & time TBC)

Foundation Programme is a tried and tested way to gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of Buddha’s teachings, maintain a daily meditation practice that is both focused and powerful, and make genuine spiritual progress. If you have been coming to classes regularly and have been getting a lot out of our drop-in classes but feel you want to go a bit deeper with your study and practice – the systematic study of this essential Buddhist text on FP may be a perfect next step for you.

From January 2025, FP will study The New Eight Steps to Happiness: Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s inspiring commentary to one of Buddhism’s best-loved teachings, Eight Verses of Training the Mind. It shows how we can transform all life’s difficulties into valuable spiritual insights, by revealing practical ways we can use this timeless wisdom to find meaning and lasting happiness in our busy modern life.

It is possible to join FP in-person or by correspondence.

To apply to join foundation programme please email for more info. Membership required, fee: £40 per month.

You can also attend two free taster sessions before enroling, to see if the programme is for you.
