Overcoming Anxiety - Maclean

Sun 13 October · 10am–1pm · $40

Anxiety and stress are increasingly common problems for people in our busy, modern world. By gaining experience of Buddhist meditation techniques and positive thinking we can learn to control our mind, rather than allowing our worrying mind to control us. By learning to accept painful feelings rather than being panicked by them we can keep a calm and happy mind in all situations.

Stress Factor Zero

Sun 1 December · 10am–1pm · $40

Whatever our lifestyle, all of us will at times in our life experience stress. So much of the stress and tension we experience comes from our mind and many of our daily problems, such as relationship difficulties and ill health, are caused or aggravated by this stress.


Special Events

We hold many special events throughout the year from special Public Talks with visiting International Teachers to away weekends and in-depth Buddhist classes and courses.

Meditation Retreats

Get away from it all and connect with your inner peace. We hold one-day retreats at the Centre as well as a general away retreat, each year.
