What happens in a FP class?
We begin with short chanted prayers to calm and prepare the mind followed by a guided meditation on the topic of the previous class. The teacher then covers a section from the book clarifying the important points and illustrating ways in which the ideas can be put into practice. Anyone can ask questions that they may have at any time. We then split up into pairs to explore the main points of the teaching, help each other to learn them, overcome doubts or misunderstandings, and to arrive at a clear understanding of how to apply them in our daily life.
Who can join?
If you have been coming to our weekly classes or weekend courses and wish to study Buddha’s teachings in a more systematic way, then feel free to join for 2 or 3 sessions to try it out. If you find it works for you, you are then welcome to join in on a regular basis. Classes more or less follow school terms.
To Find out More
We are resuming our study programmes in person where possible; however, FP will continue online with the option of catch up if you cannot make a particular week due to other commitments. We have switched to using Microsoft Teams for this and can email you a link for the meeting.
