Happiness and the Power of the Mind with Gen Dornying (Jul 27 - Aug 17)
What’s the most important, influential, rewarding thing you can do in this life?
According to Buddhism: it’s to learn how to be truly happy, and to share that experience with others.
If we know how to be truly happy, we can be like a wish-fulfilling jewel, with the power to bestow peace and happiness on everyone around us.
At this series of evening meditation classes, learn what happiness is (and isn’t); how to develop the power to be happy; and how to maintain it, no matter what challenges life brings.

How to Solve our Human Problems with Gen Dornying (weekly)
What’s a human problem?
Simply put: human problems are problems that humans create, and only humans can solve.
That’s us. We created the problems, so we must solve them.
There are so many human problems to solve: stress, anxiety, self-doubt, addiction; worries about our health, our finances, and the future. Our relationships are often riddled with human problems. Society – which is just a collection of a lot of humans – adds more problems: crime, violence, poverty, prejudice.
Fortunately, we have special teachings to help us solve these difficulties.
In a new course, conceived especially for these challenging times, Resident Teacher Gen Dornying will teach step-by-step how to overcome these difficulties, using the beloved book How to Solve Our Human Problems.
By studying this book, you’ll also learn one of Buddha’s most popular and well-known teachings: the Four Noble Truths.
The course is designed sequentially, but you can join (or drop off and re-join) at any time.

The Stages of the Path with Gen Dornying (weekly)
Buddha gave 84,000 teachings. The average life span in Australia is just 30,112 days. What hope do we have?
Fortunately, the Indian Buddhist master Atisha created a special set of instructions that contain all the essential teachings of Buddhism. We call this the stages of the path to enlightenment, or Lamrim in Tibetan. When we gain experience of Lamrim, at any level, our mind is protected from turbulence and discomfort.
Think of it like the kindest, most meaningful CliffsNotes.
In a special series of evening meditation classes, conceived especially for these unusual times, you can learn systematically the essential meaning of all of Buddha’s instructions.
