We offer regular free classes here at the Phuket Meditation Center. We base them on Thai Theravada Buddhist teachings and structure them into three modules. We start with general teachings which arise in dependency upon requests of the students or certain topics which are right for the circumstances. After that we meditate for a while and end the session with a question and answer section.
Why are the classes free?
We follow the principle of Dana (Generosity, Giving), that means we offer the teachings for the benefit of the people who need to relax and find peace within. In our tradition we consider it incorrect to charge money for this. We see teachings as something giving the highest benefit of happiness and peace. Charging money for something as beneficial and healing would not feel right to us. However you are welcome to practice Dana as well and show your appreciation for the classes by offering any amount of money as long as you are happy to give.
