Happiness and the Power of the Mind with Gen Dornying (27 Jul - 17 Aug)

What’s the most important, influential, rewarding thing you can do in this life?

According to Buddhism: it’s to learn how to be truly happy, and to share that experience with others. 

If we know how to be truly happy, we can be like a wish-fulfilling jewel, with the power to bestow peace and happiness on everyone around us.

At this series of evening meditation classes, learn what happiness is (and isn’t); how to develop the power to be happy; and how to maintain it, no matter what challenges life brings.

Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully with Gen Dornying (weekly)

We are alive, therefore we will die.

This is the simplest, most obvious truth, yet few of us have come to terms with this fact. Once we do, we’ll find the energy to use our life in a meaningful way, and to help others through this very natural process. 

Be guided through Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully, and learn to:

  • Make each day meaningful
  • Become free from trivial worries and concerns 
  • Help others who are grieving
  • Support those who are dying with a peaceful death process

At a time when life feels especially fragile and uncertain, this book is an invaluable handbook to help ourselves and others.

The Stages of the Path with Natalie Eichelmann (weekly)

Buddha gave 84,000 teachings. The average life span in Australia is just 30,112 days. What hope do we have?

Fortunately, the Indian Buddhist master Atisha created a special set of instructions that contain all the essential teachings of Buddhism. We call this the stages of the path to enlightenment, or Lamrim in Tibetan. When we gain experience of Lamrim, at any level, our mind is protected from turbulence and discomfort.

Think of it like the kindest, most meaningful CliffsNotes.

In a special series of evening meditation classes, conceived especially for these unusual times, you can learn systematically the essential meaning of all of Buddha’s instructions.
