Hello and welcome T452.
I don't know which temple you are talking about but why not try contacting them. Most temples/centres have courses or sessions that are suitable for beginners.
Best wishes for your journey
If you’re practising Dharma, you practise it for enlightenment. Not for rights, not for freedom, not for justice, not for healing, not for getting better in a worldly way.
