Is this for me?
Anyone with an interest in Buddhism can attend! But you’ll get the most benefit if you have a basic knowledge of Buddhism, or if you have attended previous Discovering Buddhism modules, or if you have completed Buddhist Meditation 101 or Buddhism in a Nutshell.

What can I expect?
A combination of teaching, meditation and Q&A.

About Geshe Namdak
Our Resident Teacher, Geshe Tenzin Namdak, was given full ordination by HH Dalai Lama and completed the twenty-year-long Geshe degree. A Dutch citizen who teaches in English, he’s known for his warm, gentle and inclusive style.

About the course
Discovering Buddhism is a three-year programme in entry-level Buddhist philosophy and practice, with certification. It was specifically created to reflect FPMT wisdom culture and as such is considered a key FPMT program for preserving the teaching and practice lineage of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Participants will experience a taste of the Buddha’s teachings, get acquainted with some meditation practices, and gain the skills they need to make their lives more meaningful.
