Sakyadhita Mini Conference and Annual General Meeting

Chenrezig Institute Eudlo Queensland   Saturday 6- Monday 8 June 2020

We have an exciting event planned and hope you will be part of it.  In June 2020, we are convening a Sakyadhita Australia Mini Conference and AGM.

This event is a wonderful opportunity to meet with the SakyadhitaOz community, find out what others are doing, and have input to the future direction of SakyadhitaOz.

Scheduled for the weekend Saturday 6 to Monday 8 June, the conference location is Chenrezig Institute, a Buddhist retreat and study centre nestled in the hills of the Sunshine Coast hinterland in Queensland.

The program will include several panels comprised of invited guests, workshops including TsaTsa painting, a guided walking tour of the Garden of Enlightenment of Chenrezig, a visit to Cittamani Hospice, as well as the option of attending the Chenrezig nuns’ daily morning puja.

We hope you will join us.
