Our Mission

We are a mind training centre in Stockholm, offering classes, courses, and various events.
Think of us like your personal mental fitness centre.

Exercising our minds can be approached in the same way we exercise our bodies. With the right methods and exercises we can get our brain in shape.

We all want more kindness, calm and joy in our lives? We all want to be able to handle difficult emotions. All it takes is the right attention and effort. Come to our mental fitness center and let us show you how!

We have different courses, secular: in meditation, mindfulness, mind training and yoga. And others, based on buddhist philosophy and psychology.

Come join us!

We encourage members to pop in to meditate, meet people or just sit and read and have a hot drink. Have a lunch break and feel stressed? Why not come along for an hour and take sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of work for a moment of mindfulness?

Positive Impact and Sustainability

We want all our activities to be sustainable and ethical, maximizing benefit while minimizing harm to people and animals, and the environment.

Our Approach

We believe that the techniques of meditation and mind training need to be presented in a way that does not require any specific belief system or religious dogma.

Our center and our activities should be presented in a way that is modern, appealing, familiar, non-sectarian, and congruent with science.

At the same time we want to offer the full range of practices and teachings available within the Indian and Tibetan Mahayana Buddhist traditions.

What we want to contribute to is this ancient wisdom taking on a form that is suitable for people of modernity, and not simply adopt formats that evolved in very different times and cultures.

Who We Are

We are affiliated with the FPMT (Foundation of the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition).┬áIf a center or project is affiliated with FPMT, it means that the center follows the spiritual direction of Lama Zopa Rinpoche. It means that the center uses FPMT’s educational programs and material, created in the unique lineage of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

Each FPMT center is incorporated individually (is a separate legal entity) and is responsible for its own governance and finance.

All FPMT centers follow the FPMT Ethical Policy.
