Introduction to Shamatha Meditation

with Venerable Rinchen 

Tuesday 22 August from 7pm to 9pm, Saturday 26 August from 9.30am to 3.00pm.

This short course is suitable for anyone who wants to gain greater clarity of mind and reduce the level of stress and tension in the mind and body.  The course will be a combination of teaching and practice in a relaxed and conducive environment.  Whilst the teachings are derived from the Buddhist philosophy a commitment to Buddhism is not required.

The course will be facilitated by Venerable Rinchen who is the resident nun at the centre, she has been running meditation courses for over 14 years.  Rinchen has completed the 2 month silent Shamatha Retreat in Phuket with Dr B Alan Wallace.  Dr Wallace is one of the foremost teachers of this practice in the west for the western mind and trained under the guidance of many great masters including His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This practice is a great way to cultivate a wonderful sense of well being and mental balance.

Course cost is $60 and includes a meditation booklet, refreshments, if you have a yoga mat please bring it along as we will do some of the meditations lying down.  Please bring your lunch for the Saturday session.  Numbers are limited so book and pay to secure your place.
