Q. Do I need to have experience in meditation or Buddhism to attend a class?
You do not need to have experience in meditation or be a Buddhist to attend. The meditation classes we offer are suitable for all individuals, whatever their level of interest- from those who seek simple relaxation and stress relief, to those who wish to learn about Modern Buddhism. Everyone is welcome!

Q. I’ve never been to a meditation class before. What should I expect?
Classes  are very accessible. You do not need to bring any mats or wear any special clothing. There will be chairs available to sit on. There is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved. 

Q. What does a typical class look like?
A typical class consists of a simple relaxation meditation, a short teaching and a follow-up meditation. The meditations are guided and are suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike.

Q. I’ve been coming to classes for a while. I really like what I hear. Is there something more I can try?
For those students who want to deepen their experience of Buddhism. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso designed the Foundation Program (FP). FP allows us to become more deeply familiar with Buddhist teachings by systematically studying one of five texts on the FP curriculum.
