Gloria Borrows has been studying and practicing Kadampa Buddhism for many years. She has a kind, patient heart that shines through in her clear, inspiring teachings.

The classes at KMC Fraser Valley guide us on a path of positive inner development, and attending the centre provides a structure which keeps our practise strong, enabling us to keep a positive mind during challenging times.

KMC Fraser Valley was founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche – a renowned meditation master and scholar who has founded over 1,100 meditation centres throughout the world. He presents the teachings of Buddha in a way that is easy to understand and put into practise, positively transforming every aspect of our life.

Classes are suitable for all levels and begin with a guided meditation followed by a talk on how we can apply it to our daily life, followed by a final meditation.

The classes are based on Buddhist teachings but you don’t need to be Buddhist to attend. Seating is on chairs and you don’t need to wear any special clothing.
