Since the outbreak of COVID in March 2020 attendance at our classes has been by donation. Many people have been very generous and we thank them. However, due to the ongoing nature of the pandemic and the impact on the centre’s ability to cover its operating costs we are re-introducing the session cost of $10 per session, half price if needed. All proceeds support the upkeep of the traditional Tibetan temple and the gardens. To pay for online sessions please link here.
