Although Karma is often spoken about, most people lack a clear understanding of what it really means. Understanding karma gives you the power to move away from negative patterns of behaviour without any guilt or blame, you can take responsibility and control your life. By gaining understanding and conviction in the law of karma we can radically change our life for the better, learn to accept difficult situations and create the causes for our future success and peace of mind.
In this course, you will learn about the law of karma through lecture and meditative practice.

Who or what is trustworthy in our modern world? Buddhism teaches that faith rooted in wisdom is the way out of our troubled times and that anyone can develop faith simply by improving their wisdom. Faith is a naturally virtuous mind that functions mainly to oppose the perception of faults in its observed object. Extraordinary results arise from this pure mind of faith, providing authentic inner refuge.
In this course, through lecture and meditative practice, you will learn how the minds of wisdom and faith can help us develop great inner strength, bringing benefit to ourselves and others.
