How to be Kind to Yourself with Gen Dornying (19 Oct - 9 Nov)
Often, we’re not kind to ourselves at all. We look at our flaws and see them as ugly; we fall short of our expectations; we feel inadequate.
No wonder we’re often stressed, frustrated, and disappointed. How we relate to ourselves affects every aspect of our life.
Instead of kicking yourself for gaining some weight during lockdown, or not mastering a new hobby, learn how to develop a positive self-view. Learn techniques and meditations to develop inner strength, confidence, and unlock your potential for transformation.

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.
Please Note – there will be no class on Tuesday 27 Oct.

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.
Please Note – there will be no class on Thursday 29 Oct.
