Solve your daily problems. 

Create lasting happiness from within. 

Discover a deeper purpose for yourself and others.


Using the acclaimed text, Modern Buddhism, by Buddhist scholar and meditation master Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, each class includes guided meditations, practical instruction, and time for discussion. No previous experience is necessary; absolutely everyone is welcome.


This class is taught by Kadampa Teacher Avery Barnette. Avery loves being able to share the positive impact that Dharma teachings have brought her and to help others gain a similar experience. Avery has been a modern Kadampa student of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche since 2015. Through attending General Program classes and participating in both the Foundation and Teacher Training Programs, Avery has been able to significantly expand her experience of Buddha's teachings. Avery was the Volunteer Coordinator and Education Program Coordinator at KMC Fort Lauderdale from 2017 until she relocated to Ann Arbor in 2020.
