Foundation Program (Lompoc)

An event every week that begins at 5:30pm on Thursday, repeating until December 14, 2017
This class requires enrollment. Please email us at info@MeditationInSantaBarbara.org if you would like more details about enrollment in this book study program.
The Foundation Program is a unique, structured study program that enables us to gain deeper understanding and experience of Buddhist teachings and to develop a regular meditation practice. It is ideal for those who have a general understanding of Buddhism but who wish to learn more.
During our page-by-page study of Eight Steps to Happiness we will meditate on eight beautiful verses that comprise one of Buddhism’s best-loved teachings, Eight Verses of Training the Mind.
Through regular teachings and meditation, systematic study and group discussion, the Foundation Program (FP) supports our spiritual life. The Mahakankala Buddhist Center North FP class meets on Thursday evenings from 5:30-7:30pm with term and holiday breaks. The special quality of FP is that we can gain authentic experience without abandoning a modern lifestyle.
By studying on this program we gain greater confidence in our meditation practice – from basic techniques for overcoming everyday problems, to practices leading to unsurpassed happiness and permanent inner peace.
