Weekly Drop-in Classes
Weekly Drop-in Classes
Our weekly meditation drop-in classes are taught by qualified Buddhist teachers, and are very easy to understand and apply to our daily lives. The classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners, and emphasize how to use meditation and subsequent practices amidst the busyness of modern, daily life. The union of Buddha’s teachings within our daily life is the essence of Kadampa Buddhism.

Finding Direction with Gen Dornying (8 - 29 March)
Work hard, save money, buy a house, find that happily ever after. After a few years or decades of adulting, that formula doesn’t seem so great. Is it broken?
Buddha’s teachings, principally on how to find peace within, will give us the direction we’re looking for. Then, we can enjoy that house (or not); a career (or not) – confident that our life has meaning, purpose and direction.
The course is designed sequentially, but you can join at any time. In-person and online.

Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully with Gen Dornying (weekly)
This is the simplest, most obvious truth, yet few of us have come to terms with this fact.
Once we do, we’ll find the energy to use our life in a meaningful way, and to help others through this very natural process.
Join us online as Gen Dornying continues to give commentary to the book Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, an invaluable handbook to help ourselves and others and become free from trivial worries and concerns.
Although this class is run sequentially, you can join anytime.
Meditate, Pray, Love Drop-in Class (weekly)
You don’t need to go to an ashram in India, eat pasta in Italy, or hang out with a medicine man in Bali. (Not that we’re against those things.)
Our daily life can become a spiritual journey.
In fact, making our life our spiritual practice is key to remaining calm and happy in this hectic world.
In this four-week course, learn meditations and practices that will help you transform every moment of your life into the spiritual path.

The Stages of the Path with Natalie Eichelmann (weekly)
Everyone knows that meditation is beneficial, but still we find it difficult to develop a regular practice.
The Indian master Atisha condensed Buddha’s 84,000 teachings into just 21 essential meditations to help us improve our experience of daily happiness. We call this the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, or Lamrim in Tibetan. Through practising these meditations we can learn to discover the inner peace of meditation and how to apply it to our daily life.
Take some time to sit down and meditate every Thursday evening and kick start your meditation practice.
