The cost is $65 per month to become a Center sponsor, which also includes admission to our weekly drop-in meditation classes at the Center and branches. It is recommended that students attend drop-in classes before enrolling in Foundation Program. The Foundation Program gives you the opportunity to engage in a structured study and meditation program on the essential teachings of the Buddhist spiritual path. Buddhism teaches that to find lasting happiness and meaning in our lives we need to follow a spiritual path. Through regular teachings and meditation, systematic study, and group discussion, the Foundation Program offers modern people the same kind of training followed by spiritual practitioners over the generations dating back to the time of Buddha Shakyamuni. The Foundation Program is taught by Kelsang Tashi, an American Buddhist monk and the Resident Teacher of Samudrabadra Kadampa Buddhist Center.

The student agrees to attend every class, learn the material, and to take a written test at the conclusion of the study.

In this way we can gain authentic experience of Buddha’s teachings while still maintaining our contemporary lifestyle. This is a very clear explanation, which de-mystifies meditation and provides a great deal of support at every level.

Bring a meditation cushion or yoga blanket if you have one, and wear non-binding clothing that permits free movement. We can also receive it by fax, which is secure, but first call us so we can give you our fax number and turn on the fax machine. The teacher and students conclude by deciding what to meditate on in the next class and how to practice during the coming week. Weininger returned for further training with Desikachar, and began to incorporate yoga practice and philosophy into his psychiatric practice. For the past 25 years, he has worked to develop a synthesis between dynamic psychotherapy, medicines when needed, and yoga principles. He finds these highly compatible, and has observed that daily practice tailored to the needs of the individual is a powerful accelerator of emotional growth in a positive direction.
