Free Introductory Talk

September 8, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


HUMsnip2Everyone is welcome to this introductory talk to find out more about joining our Foundation Program, a systematic and specially designed study program.

We are about to embark upon the study of How to Understand the Mind by scholar and meditation master, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. This text is a beautiful, accessible presentation of the mind, elucidating with astounding clarity the nature of cognition, the power of our thoughts, and the various functions of awareness. It is a practical guide for developing and maintaining a light, positive mind.

Foundation Program (FP) meets twice weekly at MBC on Tuesdays and Fridays, 7-9pm, with holiday and term breaks. This program is ideal for those who attend intro classes and would like to deepen their knowledge and practical experience of Buddha’s teachings. Joining FP is a rare and precious opportunity to study, meditate on, and discuss Dharma in a systematic fashion.

FP is taught by our Resident Teacher, Keli Vaughan. She is a long-time student of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and has has been practicing Buddhism in formal study programs of the New Kadampa Tradition for twenty years. Her teachings are practical and easy to apply to everyday life.
