NOT a drop-in class
The Foundation Program (FP) is a uniquely structured study program that enables us to gain a deep understanding and experience of Buddhist teachings and meditation practices. It is ideal for those who have a general understanding of Buddhism, but who wish to learn more. Each class incorporates meditation, prayer, teaching and discussion. As this is a study program, each student is encouraged to join only if they can attend on a regular basis. For full information, including registration info, see the FP in Wicker Park Page.
