We teach meditation courses in London in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition to people from anywhere in the world and from all walks of life.
Additionally, we also offer a diverse and engaging programme to learn about Buddhism in a way that is both completely authentic and fully meets the needs of men and women in modern times.
Students can apply different aspects of these teachings to their lives in ways that bring inner development and benefit to others – and without necessarily having to think of themselves as ‘Buddhist’. At the same time, the teachings can be followed as a lifetime path of study and practice.
