AF Program_T3_2019

1) Learn to Meditate Course – Wednesday Nights 7pm to 8.30pm


How to Meditate. Wednesday nights!

This self-contained 3-week unit is for anyone who would like to learn how to meditate. It is designed to be suitable for those of any religious faith or none.
This is also where anyone interested in following our programme of the practice and study of Tibetan Buddhism should start. Buddhism cannot be meaningfully engaged with unless we have a foundation of meditation, and the Tibetan approach to meditation differs in some ways from other techniques commonly taught.

No enrolment needed. Chairs and cushions provided. Suggested donation: $10 per class.
Wednesday 7.00pm – 8.30pm • See latest Term Program for dates

Meditation Course Term 1 2019



2) The Path to Buddhahood. Wednesday Nights 7pm to 8.30pm

Wednesday 7.00pm – 8.30pm •  See latest Term Program for dates

While continuing to establish a firm foundation of meditation practice, students can explore the Buddhist path of wisdom and compassion further in this course. It is based on Gampopa’s “Jewel Ornament of Liberation”, one of the two major guides to the spiritual path taught to serious seekers and practitioners in our tradition.
The course is designed for both beginner and intermediate students. It covers assumed material for anyone receiving empowerment or teaching from HE Ayang Rinpoche.
