What is the Difference Between General Program Meditation Classes and Foundation Program?

General Program (GP) classes are designed to provide varying topics of Kadam Dharma to give students a general experience of Buddhism. They are drop-in classes designed so you can come and go as you wish without a commitment. Foundation Progam (FP) classes are structured to provide continual teachings from one book until it is complete. It is a study program where students commit to come to each class, engage in longer meditations (30 minutes), actively interact in discussion with fellow students, and study outside of class. If you are interested, please contact rt@meditationinbloomington.org

FP $65 per month  

  • Weekly Foundation Program (FP) class

  • Free weekly meditation classes

  • ONE mini meditation retreat per month

  • THREE preliminary retreats per year

  • Monthly support for KMC Bloomington

Being an FP student means that you practice taking the Dharma to heart by applying it in daily activities. It also means being a part of the Kadampa Meditation Center Bloomington community. The Center runs on volunteers. FP students have the opportunity to contribute by volunteering in some way. FP is on Sunday from 4-7:30pm: the first session 4-5:30pm with a 30-minute dinner break and second session 6-7:30pm.
