New 5-week introductory course – Sundays 1.30pm from 20 August
Our new introductory course is great for anyone who’s curious about meditation, wants some more practice or to learn about Buddhist advice for life. The five-week course from 20 August will focus on the basic foundation of meditation, to help you to concentrate, relax and be more present in your life.
The teacher is Rebecca Skelton, a teacher and director at the Centre who studied with our Spiritual Founder, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden. The class is based on his text, Essence of the Path to Enlightenment.
Finding meaning in life
We will also introduce the Buddhist philosophy for living a meaningful life that has been supporting people for thousands of years, including:
- finding meaning in life and feeling peaceful in the world
- the power of practising love and compassion on a path to happiness
- how cause and effect plays out in our lives
We’ll practise different styles of meditation, have plenty of time for questions and discussion. It’s also a nice way to meet like-minded people. Classes are held in our beautiful peaceful Tibetan temple from 1.30 to 3 pm for five Sundays from 20 August. Come along to any class in the series.
Class is followed by afternoon tea for those who’d like to stay. Facility charge is $10 with proceeds supporting the temple.
