The Foundation Programme (FP) is an inspiring study programme that has been specially designed to develop and enhance our understanding and practical experience of Buddha’s teachings through a systematic study of six texts. It is designed for those people who wish to study Buddha’s teachings in more depth than is available at drop-in classes. It takes a more structured approach and classes consist of teachings, discussions, chanted prayers and guided meditations.

At KMC Nottingham we offer FP on Thursday evenings (7 – 9pm), taught by our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Gakyi. We will shortly begin studying ‘How to Understand the Mind.

Gen Gakyi will be giving an introduction to this programme on Thursday, 15 June (7pm) – further information here:…programme-15/

The classes are open to anyone having already attended classes at the Centre. If you wish to enrol on the programme, please speak to us at a drop-in class or email
