  • Dealing With Destructive Emotions
    Sat 13 February 1-4 pm

    We can all remember times when anger, jealousy or obsessive desire got the best of us and we ended up engaging in words and/or deeds that harmed others and ultimately harmed us. There is no doubt that we regret these episodes. Buddhism has many techniques that we can use to connect with our innate loving-kindness, wisdom and compassion which are powerful antidotes to all our destructive emotions.

Online Registration and Payment

Weekday Classes

  • Engaging Bodhicitta
    Tuesdays 7.30pm
    January 5, 12 and February 2

    Many of us have taken the Bodhisattva vows – making a promise to achieve enlightenment and lead all beings to the state of complete and perfect enlightenment. As Lama Zopa might say “WOW -WOW- WOW!”

    However, have we sincerely contemplated the significance of this?
    Just reciting our daily practice is not going to get us to our goal. These teachings will look at whether we have a stable foundation and explore the advice of great masters on how to practice the Six Perfections.

  • Everyone Can Meditate – Even You!!
    Thursdays 10:30am – 12:00 ↢ Weekday morning teaching
    January 7, 14, 21, 28

    These teachings will show you how easy meditation can be and guide you through actual meditations. It’s certainly not about beating our thoughts into submission or pushing them away or trying to “empty” our minds. By treating our body and our mind with kindness, and learning how to be relaxed and open, we can experience the joy and peace of skillful meditation.
    We have yoga mats which can be used to meditate in the supine position – an added option and something you might like to try!

  • The A to Z of the Buddhist Path
    Sundays 2:30pm
    January 10, 17, 24, 31 and February 7, 14

    “I regard as the most important thing in the world anybody who dedicates his or her life to achieving Lam-Rim realizations. You can be doing business and studying and meditating on the Lam-Rim. You can have family and a job, and be meditating on the Lam-Rim.”

    Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche.

    The Lam Rim is a complete summary of the Buddha’s teachings. This course will present the teachings at a practical level with meditations that you can practice at home. The Buddha’s teachings were given to overcome the mental and physical problems we face on a day-to-day basis and the continual cycle of death and rebirth.
