Foundation Program is a weekly study program combining teachings, meditation and discussion. FP enables us to gain deeper understanding and experience of Buddhist teachings while connecting with a spiritual community. It is ideal for those who have an introductory understanding of Buddhism and wish to learn more.

KMC SD Foundation Program

We are currently studying The New Heart of Wisdom by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

The oral transmission of the book combined with guided meditations and discussion, will build our confidence to apply Dharma in daily life. By doing this consistently, we will joyfully turn our initial insights into actual realizations of Dharma. Most of all, by building a connection with the teachings and spiritual friends, Foundation Program is the perfect way to enjoy a spiritual community.

Student Enrollment

Foundation Program enrollment is available to members. It is a $75/month commitment that includes FP, General Program classes, half-day retreats/day courses, and Preliminary retreats. Students that are unable to travel to our location due to personal disability or distance can enroll in our home correspondence program. Home correspondence students can attend FP class on Zoom or watch the video replay.
