Forthcoming and Ongoing Longchen Foundation Classes

We have one final Lion’s Roar Foundation weekend coming up next month, 8-9 May. For those unfamiliar with the Lion’s Roar, this is our foundational and introductory programme in Buddhist practice and view. It introduces students to a fundamentally different way of experiencing and acting in the world, free from the ordinary tangle of confusion and instead imbued with a sense of openness and caring for others. It is a three year course, and this is the last opportunity of this year to begin this path of training. The first weekend covers the foundational meditation and fundamental point of view of Buddhist practice. We still have early-bird tickets available until 24 April which we offer at a significant discount! For more information see the event page here: The weekend will be taught by Mary Mackay-James, one of Rigdzin Shikpo‘s earliest students.
