Developing Wisdom and Compassion

Designed for people who would like a deeper understanding and experience of basic Buddhist principles such as human potential, impermanence, and karma, and how they can be applied to modern daily life. These classes combine study and meditation with discussion and are open to everyone. No previous experience required.

After each class, there is an opportunity to meet the teacher and ask any questions you may have. We also serve free peppermint tea in our World Peace Café, so that you can relax and reflect on the teachings before going home. Also, there is an opportunity to meet like-minded people.

The Teacher

Our Tuesday teacher, Lorraine has been studying and practicing Kadampa Buddhism for over twenty years. Lorraine has over twenty years experience of teaching Kadampa Buddhism and  brings great joy, clarity, humor and practicality to her teachings. She also is our World Peace Cafe Manager.
