Study Programs

KMC Florida offers a comprehensive education program consisting of three study programmes designed by Venerable Geshe Kelsang: the General Program (GP), the Foundation Program (FP) and the Teacher Training Program (TTP).

The General Program provides a basic introduction to Buddhist view, meditation and practice that is suitable for beginners. Foundation Program provides an opportunity to deepen our understanding and experience of Buddhism.  Teacher Training Program is designed for people who wish to train as authentic Dharma Teachers. In addition to studying fourteen texts of Sutra and Tantra, students are required to observe certain commitments with regard to behavior and way of life, and to complete a number of meditation retreats.

GP classes are on a drop-in basis and participants are welcome to attend without any commitments. FP and TTP have enrollment requirements. For more information on the FP and TTP please browse the info on the website or contact the Education Program Coordinator – epc@MeditationInSarasota.org
