Slow down and de-stress with meditation and mindfulness events
Tibetan Lama Dzogchen Rinpoche will help people in Melbourne to slow down and de-stress.

Public Talk

Why are you so busy?

His Eminence the 7th Dzogchen Rinpoche says that the pace of modern life is distracting people from their real purpose – to lead a more peaceful life.

Dzogchen Rinpoche will be in Melbourne on Friday 8th November at Toorak Uniting Church Hall, 603 Toorak Rd, Toorak to give a Public Talk entitled 'Why are you so busy?'

His Eminence said that often we are so caught up in our busy lives that we lose touch with what brings us true happiness.

He said: "We don't even realise how distracted we are from our real purpose, having been hooked by the promise of more through longer work hours and taking on more commitments.

"Other times we are simply running away from something we fear. This imbalance leads to stress and dis-ease making us time-poor and preventing us from the things that really bring meaning and joy to our lives.

"Many of us realise we are stuck but don't know how to make the changes necessary to lead a more peaceful life."

In the public talk, drawing on ancient Dzogchen Teachings, Dzogchen Rinpoche will share wonderful heart advice and methods on how to live with the natural flow of life that we were intended to live, from the very beginning.

Tickets are $25 ($20 concession) and can be purchased online at

Three-Day Seminar and Meditation

Who is in control?

Following the Public Talk there will be a Three-Day Seminar and Meditation in Melbourne from Saturday 9th to Monday 11th November.

In this Seminar Dzogchen Rinpoche will explain further how we can make a real change in our busy lives. By guiding us on how to ask ourselves the right questions, we begin to make choices that unclutter our mind. Rinpoche will show us how we can apply this to all areas of our lives including our careers and relationships.

We will also learn more about very practical and skilful methods such as meditation that we can apply in our everyday life to realise this great potential.
