Meditation For Insomnia: AMITABHA SLEEPING YOGA (ONLINE OR IN-PERSON COURSE)

Discover the ancient secrets to a good night's sleep in this special course with Lama Choedak Rinpoche.

One third of our life is spent in sleep and yet many people cannot sleep very well.

Some cannot switch off their mind - instead they may drink alcohol, stay up all night, watch violent movies and suffer from severe sleep deprivation. As a consequence, they feel tired and unable to perform their duties.

If we know how to sleep, we can restore our body and mind in good sleep, and wake up re-energised and well rested.

In Tibetan Buddhism, sleeping Yoga meditation is one of the eleven instructions so that no time wasted in a sleepless night.

With daily wholesome approaches to life and a good discipline to go to bed early as a conscious meditation practice, both body and mind can be restored and healed.

This special 2-day course is a must-do practice for all who are failing to sleep well. After this upcoming weekend of learning the practice of doing Amitabha Sleeping Yoga, your life can wake up to new way to sleep and resolve many emotional and habitual problems.

All are welcome to attend on ZOOM and in person at our centre in Holder. There will be a limited number of spaces to attend the course in person, so please book online early to avoid disappointment.

This course is suitable for beginners and no prior experience or study of Buddhism or meditation is expected. For those attending in person Please bring a pillow and yoga mat even though it is carpeted floor at the venue.

About Lama Choedak Rinpoche:Lama Choedak Rinpoche

Born in Tibet, Rinpoche was raised under the tutelage of His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche. After completing a rigorous 12-year monastic training in the Sakya order of Tibetan Buddhism, Rinpoche graduated from a three and a half year solitary meditation retreat sponsored by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

As a highly acclaimed translator, Rinpoche has translated for some of the highest Tibetan Buddhist masters of all four traditions. Living in the West for 20 years he is the founder and spiritual director of over a dozen centers in Australasia.

He has been teaching Buddhism and meditation in the west for over fifteen years, and a frequent visitor to the Mid North Coast over the past several years. 

His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche conferred upon him the title of “Rinpoche” (precious one) in recognition of his Buddhist activities in Australia. Rinpoche has an excellent command of English and a deep understanding of the Western mind. His teachings are lucid, practical and enjoyable.
