An opportunity for you to go deeper into your spiritual practice!

Foundation Program (FP) gives us the opportunity to take our understanding and spiritual practice to a deeper level - helping us to integrate it naturally into our daily life. FP offers a special opportunity to join the community, enjoying the company of spiritual friends, and teachings in this blessed environment. The class will begin studying “The New Eight Steps to Happiness,” by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
