These sessions are self contained so you can start at any time. Simple guided meditations and a talk on Buddhist topics from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's books, followed by an opportunity for tea and biscuits and a chat with the teacher and other attendees. We sit on chairs for the class and booklets are provided for a short Buddhist prayer that is played at every session.
The session Teacher is Kelsang Pagma, who studies the Teacher Training Programme at Tara IKRC and has been ordained as a Kadampa Buddhist nun for many years. She shares her wealth of meditative experience with joy and clarity, and explains how to apply Buddha’s teachings practically to daily life.
