Experiential Buddhist Learning

Welcome to Abiding Heart Education

International teacher training centre in experiential Buddhist education.


Abiding Heart Education™ is a new approach to education which rests on a Buddhist paradigm. Fusing Buddhist worldview, meditation and application with aspects of Steiner/ Waldorf methodology and developmental science we have created a unique children’s transformative pedagogy that gives equal weight to the intellectual, affective and action domains.


At Abiding Heart Education we conduct research which informs the development of our teacher training curriculum and methodology as well as the children’s curricular content and learning approach. A main outcome of this work is a transformative experiential Buddhist teacher training centre in Nepal, which caters for international and local communities. Located on a hillside in the Kathmandu valley, close to Tergar Osel Ling Monastery, it was founded in 2017 by Ven Mingyur Rinpoche and Dr Meyrav Mor and brings together a team of acclaimed academics and experts in education, developmental science, the arts and Buddhism.
