This popular meditation class will be led by Chaplain Jeff Newton (a long term student of Lama Choedak Rinpoche). We are pleased to announce that this class will be held in person at our centre in Holder, Canberra AND online.

Calm Abiding meditation is a traditional, easily accessible form of meditation that will rapidly bring peace and happiness to your mind as you learn to abide in the present moment.

Meditation has a proven record in its ability to improve health, awaken happiness and give a clear perspective on life. This 8-week course will introduce you to the five experiences and nine mental stages of calm abiding meditation.
