stickers

SATURDAY

Teacher Topic
Ven Thubten Chodron Destination Forgiveness - Are anger and vengeance the only ways to respond when we experience harm? Join Ven. Chodron as she shares on how the practice of forgiveness can help us to heal from harm and free us from contributing to a continuing cycle of violence.
Ven Dhammadaasa Destination Wisdom – Many people understand that the Buddha’s teaching is about giving up dogma, discount but few seem to be able to identify dogma in their understanding of Dhamma. Ven Dhammadaasa has found the key to doing so in the quote from the Buddha that says: “Do not say ‘this is the truth’ but rather “I believe this… (is the truth).” This may not be so compatible with popular ideas that the Buddha taught “there is no-self” and that we should avoid ideas of “I” and “mine”.
Ven Guo Jun Destination Right Effort – Have you ever felt stagnant in your spiritual practice? Are you hitting the snooze button instead of the meditation cushion? Do you find it hard to practice in a busy environment full of distractions and do you feel you are not getting anywhere lately? In this workshop, medicine Ven. Guo Jun will explore the concept of Right Effort and how to apply it diligently to your practice.
Alexandra Yuille  & Debbie Whitney  Destination Compassion – In this workshop, Alexandra and Debbie will explore what compassion is and what it is not. We will also explore contemplative practices that help us develop compassion and spend time experiencing a guided meditation to get us started on this transformative journey. These practices are based on the teachings of Sogyal Rinpoche, author of the highly acclaimed Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.
Phil Carlisle  Destination Emptiness – In the 8thcentury AD, the Indian Yogi Saraha said “People who think that things are real are as stupid as a cow; People who think things are not real are even more stupid.” What did he mean? This workshop will explore the Buddhist view of emptiness from a few different angles and see what science thinks as well
Grahame White Destination Urban Mindfulness – In this workshop Grahame will discuss practical strategies using mindfulness exercises to cultivate inner equanimity and balance for city living. The meditative exercises will be based on The Four applications of Mindfulness – the heart of the Buddha’s teachings.

 SUNDAY

Teacher Topic
Ven Brahmali &/or Sujato Destination Loving kindness – If you want to rule the universe or you just want a nice life, this is for you!
Ven Huifeng Destination Nirvana – Congratulations! You’ve taken leave from your sa?s?ric job, packed your suitcase of wholesome virtues, zafu and m?la beads, and are now heading on an all expenses paid Dharma vacation—Destination Nirv??a®!  Yeehaa!  But, where is this nirv??a?  How do I get there?  What’s the weather like? We’d like to invite you to come and chat about this magical mystery holiday Destination Nirv?? with Ven. Huifeng.  He hasn’t been to Nirv??a either but he read about it once in a copy of Lonely Planet, and he’s got an old second hand t-shirt from someone who supposedly went and lived to tell the tale.  So he says…
Ven Thubten Choden Destination Awareness – In this workshop Ven. Thubten Choden will explore how we can improve our awareness and experience stress-free mindful living in our daily lives. She will share her insights on how we all can develop a practice based on mindfulness of body, speech and mind.
Sarah Napthali Destination Self-Compassion – Have you ever felt like a failure at meditation? Maybe you have beaten yourself up for not responding in a “Buddhist” way when things go wrong. For some Dharma practitioners, particularly those living in the West, self-compassion can be a vital missing component of a Buddhist practice. Yet if we can learn to cultivate compassion for ourselves in times of struggle, then we are far more likely to respond compassionately to others. When we are harsh on ourselves, we tend to be harsh on others as well. In this workshop, Sarah will explore the reasons we don’t practice self compassion as well as some ways to bring a practice of self compassion into our lives.
Chien Hoong Gooi Destination Light-heartedness - Many people are searching for happiness and greater contentment in life. This workshop discusses the question of being a cup half full or half empty type of person and explores the various practices that help individuals live a meaningful life. It brings together the timeless wisdom of the Buddha’s teachings and findings from contemporary scientific and social research. The various practices are introduced in a step-by-step manner, providing helpful guidance to the way we live and the way we deepen our spiritual practice.
Jim Teoh Destination Impermanence – This topic looks into the Buddhist definition of impermanence as one of the universal characteristics and its relationship to the other two characteristics of unsatisfactoriness and non-self. This session discusses how this understanding can help a person to practise so as to lead a more fruitful life.
