The Spiritual Teacher - Discovering Buddhism – 4 Module without assessment

In this module you will investigate the role of the teacher on the spiritual path: the need for a teacher, the qualities of a teacher, the qualities of a student, and how to relate to a teacher for greatest benefit in one’s spiritual life. You will consider the challenges we face when thinking of entering into a guru-disciple relationship and learn how to overcome these skillfully.

One module will be offered each weekend, The Saturday will consist of teachings given by Geshe Namdak. The Sunday morning will consist of group discussions, a Q&A session and a guided meditation. Those who wish to study individual modules can attend both days or only Saturday.


Geshe Tenzin Namdak was given full ordination by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and is our new resident teacher. He recently gained his Geshe degree, the equivalent of a doctorate of philosophy in our education system. A Dutch citizen, he teaches in English and is well known for his warm, gentle, inclusive style.
