Everyone Welcome!  About GP:

GP or General Program Classes are drop-in classes that are open to everyone.  GP classes provide a basic introduction to Buddhist meditation and practice that is suitable for beginners.  It also includes advanced teachings and practice from both Sutra and Tantra.

What’s the next step?  About FP and TTP:

The Foundation Program offers an opportunity to deepen our understanding and experience of Buddhism through a systematic study of six texts written by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.  The prerequisite for joining FP is to have consistently attended GP for a while.  FP currently meets on Sundays from 4-6:30 pm.

The Teacher Training Program is designed for people who wish to train as authentic Dharma Teachers.  In addition to completing the study of 14 texts of Sutra and Tantra, the student is required to observe certain commitments with regard to behavior and way of life and to complete a number of meditation retreats.  The prerequisite for joining TTP is to have been a student on FP or GP for at least 1 year.  TTP currently meets on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7-9 pm.

As a Benefactor you receive all classes and special events for free and your gift is entirely tax deductible.  Anyone on any of the three study programs can become a benefactor.  MKBC receives no outside funding.  Membership dues are key to sustaining the spiritual program at the center.  Please note:  the full price of off site retreats depends upon the venue.  The retreat sites are chosen for their peacefulness and beauty.  Housing costs will vary.
