Wednesdays 7-9pm 

Foundation Programme (FP) gives people the opportunity to engage in a more in-depth and structured approach to the practice of meditation and Buddhism. Through following traditional methods of study we can gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of Buddha’s teachings, develop a powerful meditation practice, and bring about a positive transformation in our mind.

Foundation Programme is for those people who wish to build a solid foundation and experience of Buddhist teachings. Classes include guided meditation, teaching and group discussion, all aimed at enabling students to develop their daily practice and support each other to become skillful meditation practitioners. Everyone is welcome.

Joining the Foundation Programme involves enrolling to study one book (or section of a book), attending all the classes and sitting an exam at the end of the book or section. Each class consists of chanted prayers, a guided meditation, teaching and discussion. You are welcome to attend a class before enrolling and you can join at any time.

Current programme

From September 2021 the programme will be studying the book How to Understand the Mind.


£20 per month; FREE for KMC Liverpool members.
