This practice is a great way to cultivate a wonderful sense of well being and mental balance.

Lifetime Membership

Lifetime Memberships and Mortgage Drive

Our centre started it's humble beginnings in Kewarra Beach in 2001 and after several moves and through amazing circumstances,(click here to read the full story), we were fortunate enough to buy the old church in Clare/Severin Street, where we now reside. It hasn't been an easy road and there were times when we didn't know if we would make our loan repayments but it has definitely been worth it. So many people have benefited from our beautiful, peaceful and truly blessed space.  We have hosted many amazing teachers over this period and even had the precious relics of the Holy Buddha as well! To celebrate, we thought it would be auspicious to offer lifetime memberships to the community. Offering these special memberships will help us to reduce our loan and help to consolidate the future of this Dharma Centre in Cairns.
