These Thurs sessions will continue to mid Dec with a new theme, come and be surprised or check out the web site below for detailed updates.
Join us every Thursday afternoon for a relaxed exploration of the world of Tibetan Buddhism. This introductory course covers topics such as mind and its potential, how to meditate, establishing a daily practice, karma and transforming problems.
A new topic will be explored each week over several months, making it an excellent opportunity to get an overview of core Buddhist teachings in the Tibetan tradition. You are also welcome to drop in and attend on a casual basis.
Thursdays 1.15 pm - 2.30 pm, in the Tara Room at Chenrezig Institute. No need to book, entry by donation. All welcome! Venerable Lhagsam has over 15 years worth of experience working in palliative care. She combines her insight into the teachings of the Buddha with her experience of modern medicine. She has helped many people, (her cat too) through protracted illness and death, and conducts funerals for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.
Established 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers and guests.
Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in formal garden, espresso in the cafe or a vegetarian meal.
