All of our classes are suitable for people who are new to Buddhism, and also those who wish to deepen their experience within a lively and supportive community. It is more productive if you can attend the complete course each time, but it is also fine to drop in when your circumstances allow.
Following Government advice, we have sadly made the decision to cancel our face-to-face classes, until allowed to meet again. We are using Zoom, an online meetings platform, to continue the classes. If you are interested in joining us in this way just follow the links on the home page to the one describing the course. It is easy to use, but if you have any problems, contact Sandra at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will try her best to help. There are more detailed instructions at the bottom of this page.
These are all offered cost free – please enjoy.
However if you do wish to contribute financially, can we suggest making a donation to Land of Joy, our retreat centre in Northumberland. Run by volunteers, they still have hefty overheads and now have no income from retreats. We’d like them to still be there when this is all over! Or make a donation to FDCW, who have given us the Building Inner Strength programme. Thank you – but only if you wish.
On the FPMT international website here you can access teachings from Lama Zopa Rinpoche, which he has been giving daily at Kopan Monastery, specific to making the most of the Covid-19 epidemic to develop our practice. He also has advice and specific prayers.
If Zoom doesn’t work for you, then please make good use of our recorded teachings, here, as well as the many other wonderful Dharma resources online. As a starter, the FPMT have made a number of their online courses available for free. They can be accessed here. Likewise, our friends at FDCW are offering courses, and their free app, 16 Guidelines for Life, is very supportive for a short daily practice.
And Geshe Tashi is continuing with his twice-monthly podcast, ‘A Buddhist Life’. As he explains in the first one, he is basing his short (15 mins – ish) reflections on HH Dalai Lama’s recently published book, ‘Daily Inspirations’. He has added a series of teachings specifically about how they are coping with the virus at hos monastery, and how we can face the difficulties with mindfulness and equanimity – also available on his website.
Try to stay positive. If you have any questions or comments, or just want to keep in touch, please contact Kay or Martin at email@example.com. And keep an eye on our website and Facebook pages for any updates.
Very best wishes
