Study Programs

General Program (GP)

GP classes are open to students of all levels including beginners, and meet weekly. Our center offers several GP classes weekly: Sundays 10 am, Mondays and Wednesdays 7 pm, and branch classes in St Augustine, Palm Coast and Port Orange.

Each class includes two guided meditations, teaching and discussion.

Foundation Program (FP) – a new beginning

Open for new members in November 2019, this is a structured program for deeper study and practice of Dharma.

We meet most Sunday afternoons, beginning November 3, at 12 noon.  Students commit to attending regularly, and missed classes can also be made up online. There are certain commitments, such as to take examinations on each section, and to engage in some retreats. 

 Alternatively, participants can opt to take the course without these commitments, but with the intention to attend regularly.  

This program is for students with sincere interest and experience in our Center or other Mahayana Buddhist study and practice, and students need to become monthly sponsors at the FP level.

We will study a new book,  Universal Compassion,  by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Rinpoche.
