– Do you enjoy psychology and exploring your mind?
– Are you looking for fresh ideas that will give you more purpose and direction?
– Do you want to learn how to meditate effectively?
The Five Forces are five practical tools Buddha taught that give power to our spiritual practice and help us to integrate mind training into our daily life. This makes them especially important for modern people, because the real beauty of Kadampa practice is in bringing together meditation and daily activities.
There’s no need to set ourselves apart from the world in order to train our mind. We are encouraged to use every aspect of our life as an opportunity to deepen our spiritual experience.
No meditation experience needed – Everyone is welcome!

General Program (GP) classes are suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. While classes are given in a series around one specific theme, they are drop-in in nature and can be taken individually, as each class topic is self-contained.
The classes are designed to help those looking for Buddhist wisdom to help with stress relief and relaxation, as well as those interested in exploring the nature of the mind, and pursuing the Buddhist path.
Classes explore the basic framework of Buddhist teachings and meditation and explain how to use Buddha’s advice in our daily lives to solve our problems. All General Program classes are based on commentaries by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
A typical class is 1.5 hours and consists of a guided relaxation meditation, a teaching based on the meditation topic, and final contemplative meditation. Chairs and cushions are provided by the Center. No special clothing is required, and there is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved.
Everyone is welcome, regardless of belief; you do not need to be Buddhist to attend.
