Enjoy learning practices of peace, contentment and love

Starting from tomorrow afternoon, and spanning the length of the next yearly calendar, on every Thursday you can enjoy an enlightening, taste-tester experience of Tibetan Buddhism!

The Chenrezig Institute, located in Eudlo, Queensland, will open its doors every Thursday from 1:15pm to 2:30pm to welcome people to both learn about and practice spirituality, peace and contentment.

These events are 'entry by donation', suitable for all ages, and can be attended on a regular or casual basis!

Each week a new topic will be explored, which will make for a wonderful opportunity to gain an overview of the core Buddhist teachings in the Tibetan tradition. This introductory course will cover topics such as:

The mind and its potential
How to meditate
How to establish a daily practice
The transforming of problems

Apart from providing study programs, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or even weeks at a time. Here you can stroll along the lovely bush paths, wander in a formal garden, enjoy an espresso in the cafe or indulge in a lovely vegetarian meal.

The Chenrezig Institute was established in 1974 and 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 large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers and guests.

Chenrezig also has a Wellbeing Centre, in which courses are offered on cultivating physical, emotional and mental balance and wellbeing. These practices incorporate authentic traditional approaches, as well as modern psychological approaches to health and lifestyle.

This fantastic weekly program is open and suitable for everyone who maybe looking for genuine happiness and well-being in a non-religious framework!

So come along and enjoy learning practices that will help you to feel more content, peaceful, and connected to the world around you.
