Supreme Protection: Building Refuge Within 

In these challenging and uncertain times everyone needs a special method to help build inner strength – the inner protection of spiritual experience.

Meditation in general, and Kadam Dharma in particular, is a powerful, special method by which to accomplish this aim. These teachings are suitable for everyone and they mix easily with the conditions of our daily life, even during these exceptional times.

With spiritual refuge, we can have direction, purpose, hope and meaning in this impure world. Discover the joy of what is called “Lamrim” practice, the heart of Kadampa Buddhism. We will learn how to build a refuge within our own mind, enabling us to realize our tremendous potential to experience real peace, strength and pure happiness using our external circumstances to protect us versus harm.
