WHERE: *Onsite & Online
 Beginner to Advanced

*Onsite attendance is limited to 20 persons. In accordance with current COVID restrictions, the 2G principle is applied (for Geimpfe and Genesene in German, i.e. only allowing people vaccinated or recovered). Masks must be worn at all time. You find our safety concept here. Participants also have the option of joining the teachings via Zoom.


Each FPMT Discovering Buddhism course ends with an intensive practice day, which is designed to review the material one more time and to practice the meditations in a retreat setting. It can also be a great way to get a summary of the course, if you did not have the chance to attend regularly. Everyone is welcome.

Discovering Buddhism is an FPMT study program aimed at giving Buddhist and non-Buddhist students a solid footing in the practice of Mahayana Buddhism. The program is not meant to be an academic study of Buddhism, it is meant to change our daily lives through experiential training in meditation and thought transformation.
