30-minute guided meditations – IN PERSON ONLY


Take a break and enjoy the true peace which is the underlying nature of your mind. Be guided through a simple yet powerful meditation that gives rise to an experience of mental peace and wellbeing.

Meditation is most effective as a daily practice, but if we notice that we are anxious and do not have the space to think clearly, it can help us to relax and find an inner stillness.

Cost $5 (Free for members.) Or $25 for unlimited January Meditation Challenge for first time member

15 Lamrim challenge starts from January 10 - January 28

Lamrim means stages of the path to enlightenment. It is the presentation of Buddha’s teachings that is the essence of Kadampa Buddhism. If you are already attending our Buddhist meditation classes, or if you would like to develop your practice beyond the 30- minute basic guided meditations and incorporate all of Buddha’s wisdom into your meditation and daily life, then this is for you!

For 15 evenings in January, each weeknight (Monday to Friday,) between January 10 and 28 there will be an evening meditation class on one of the 15 Lamrim meditations from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s most recent book, The Mirror of Dharma.

The classes are 7:30-8:30pm Mon, Tues and Wed, and 6:30–7:30pm Thu and Fri. The classes will remain open for replay view for 24 hours after the live class.

There are three ways you can experience these Lamrim meditation classes:

  1. Drop-in to an individual class 
  2. Attend in-person or online, all 15 classes in a row and kick-start or refresh your own daily Lamrim meditation practice.
  3. Use the 24-hour online replay function to do the sessions more than once in a day and create your own January Lamrim meditation retreat experience.

Cost $15 per class, FREE FOR MEMBERS. Or $25 for unlimited January Meditation Challenge.
