The Foundation Course
The Foundation Course modules are where we can start to investigate the ideas of Buddhism in relation to one another. You do not have to feel that you are a Buddhist to attend or feel you are committed to the Buddhist path. All that is needed is some familiarity with meditation and an inquisitive, open mind. The foundation course is a primer in the fundamentals of Buddhism using traditional and contemporary sources.
One of the initial ways in to the Buddha-Dharma is simply to explore tried and trusted suggestions to make sense of our meditation and life experience. The course’s approach is not abstract or
academic but a way to reflect on these themes in the light of our own experience.
Dhammakatha is a term referring to discussing the Dharma. An activity recommended by the Buddha. The Foundation Course is a great opportunity to practice discussion that allows each person to unfold their own enquiry into the profound.
I have been teaching this course for five years and my own understanding is always deepened by the fresh insights and questions that new participants bring to the conversation. There is a short piece of text to read and reflect on each week.
You do not have to be a mitra to attend this course, and you can sign up for one 5-7 week module at a time. It is not necessary to commit for the whole year
N.B. This is the second part of a 10 week module and you can only book on this if you have been attending the first half of this course.
More courses will be available to book following this course. These later courses will be open to all.
