Study and Practice

In accordance with the traditional teaching for generating spiritual realisations and transformations through the threefold activities of learning, reflection and meditation, the teaching incorporates three activities to support students in developing a better understanding of the materials and offer opportunities to generate their personal experiences in relation to the concepts covered.

There will be weekly teaching and guided meditation for the group, and personal interview slots for individuals needing further consultation. Students are encouraged to develop a personal practice to complement the teaching by completing the review quiz at the end of the module, and engage in personal reflection and meditation during the week.
