The adult’s program:

Our adult’s programs guide participants through a journey that leaves them happier and calmer than ever before! Participants are taught to direct their energy within as they discover the workings of the mind and discover their own solutions to life’s biggest problems. They experience a time of transformative self development and discovery as the Dhamma leads them on a path to uncovering the truth to this world and themselves. Our retreats consist of a combination of enlightening Dhamma talks, delving into the science of the mind as well as meditations sessions centred around applying these principles into their everyday lives, along with meritorious activities that help build a community amongst their friends of the Dhamma. Ultimately our participants leave ready and equipped with all the tools they need to handle any problems life throws at them all whilst maintaining their inner peace and tranquility.

The children’s program:

Our children’s programs are carefully designed to be fun, interactive and engaging for children of all ages! Children have interesting discussions with our teachers and make valuable connections with those around them. They are introduced to the core of Buddhist philosophy in a way that gets them excited about everything it has to offer and are taught to seek solutions to their problems in the Dhamma. They also partake in various meritorious activities which are both enjoyable and beneficial. Overall the children leave with the valuable advice and teachings of the Buddha all whilst having enjoyed their experience and wanting to come back for more!
