About the Foundation Programme – The next step

Many people have been asking about the next step to take to deepen their meditation practice. We are delighted to invite you to discover how to make your practice deeper, more structured, more regular and more enjoyable.

Foundation Programme (FP) is an ongoing, weekly course on Buddhism and meditation. The course is suitable for anyone (who ideally have been coming to Jampel Centre meditaton classes and courses for a while) with interest in deepening their understanding of Buddhist meditation and wisdom.

The Programme consists of a dynamic combination of teachings, meditation and discussion, all of which enable us to go deeper into the layers of meaning within each book that we study. All of this helps us to make real progress along our spiritual path. Each class consists of preliminary prayers, guided meditation and reading from the book with commentary and discussion.

There are many benefits to joining the Foundation Programme namely:

  • Increased personal insight, wisdom and experience of Dharma (Buddha’s teachings)

  • Studying and meditating more effectively following a specially-designed programme and qualified meditation teacher

  • An opportunity to discuss and ask questions

  • Help, support and friendship from like-minded people

  • Gain the ability to integrate Buddha’s instructions into busy modern life.

The Text We will be Studying- How To Understand the Mind

The book “How to Understand the Mind” offers deep insight into our mind, and shows how an understanding of its nature and functions can be used practically in everyday experience to improve our lives. This beautiful text is a practical guide to developing and maintaining a light, positive mind – showing how to recognize and abandon states of mind that harm us, and to replace them with peaceful and beneficial ones. In addition, it describes different types of mind in detail, revealing the depth and profundity of the Buddhist understanding of the mind. It concludes with a detailed explanation of meditation, showing how by controlling and transforming our mind we can attain a lasting state of joy, independent of external conditions.

This FP Taster Session programme will consist of 5 weeks of FP taster sessions from Friday 21 February until Friday 20 March. It is essential that enrollers attend alll the sessions (or most of them if unable to attend all) in order to have a clear understanding on how the Foundation Programme runs.

This package will also allow people to attend all the weekly meditation classes, courses and retreats run by Jampel Centre for the duration of the month taster package (Feb 21 untill March 21 included).
