Notes and Events:

Everyone who has an interest in Tibetan Buddhism, who likes to know something about meditation or who is simply curious about our center is more then welcome to drop in. Maitreya Amsterdam mainly focuses on people who know little or nothing about Buddhism, but we also provide more extensive study programs.

Venerable Kaye Miner is a Buddhist nun and the resident teacher. She teaches during weekends and in the evenings of weekdays on Buddhist philosophy within the FPMT study programs Discovering Buddhism and the Basic Program. One evening per week Venerable Kaye guides a meditation session. All teachings and the Monday night meditations are given in easy to understand English.

Often a learned Tibetan teacher (a geshe) comes to give teachings and for beginners there is the course Buddhism in a Nutshell or Meditation 1.0.

Maitreya Amsterdam regularly organises short guided retreats, pujas (Buddhist offering ceremonies) and recitations.

Also other Tibetan lamas and western teachers regularly teach or guide meditations for beginning as well as advanced students.

Besides the Buddhist program, other courses such as thangka painting and Tibetan language are organised regularly.

Our center in Emst with overnight accommodation focusses more on extensive weekend study programs and longer retreats.
