I) - Introduction to Buddhism and to Buddhist Meditation - 10-weeks course
- no longer offered -

The 10-weeks course (1 class per week, 10 classes al­to­geth­er) aimed at expats living per­ma­nently or for long periods of time in the Hua Hin area. Since 2010 we have been offering these 10-weeks courses twice each year. It seems that by now most expats interested in Buddhism and meditation have participated already, that is, the number of participants in the 10-weeks courses is declining.
Starting with autumn/winter/spring 2017-2018 we offer a month­ly 5-day course instead; always from Monday to Friday in the last week (starting and ending within the same month) of each month from October 2017 to March 2018. In December it will be a week earlier because of Christmas.
Details are given below.
