Develop your imagination by writing! Writing is a powerful tool for development and transformation. In today's’ ever-changing world, we need to make sense of it all, and what better way to do this, than by writing about it. In our inaugural writing group, we will set out to explore our outer and inner journeys through the power of the pen. Whether you’ve got a story in your head that you’ve been dying to tell or simply want the companionship of like-minded people, this group will explore the written word.

All levels of experience (or none) are welcome. There’ll be time to discuss and share ideas, and complete your work at your own pace for the next meeting. Bring your own pens, paper or laptop. Sharon Thrupp has spent many years living in India and writing about her experiences through short stories and blogs. She has organized Pilgrimages for Chenrezig Institute over the past 7 years sharing her journey.

Established 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers and guests.

Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in formal garden, espresso in the cafe or a vegetarian meal.

Teachers’ availability subject to change; please see Chenrezig Institute Calendar for updated information. Also below the far carpark is our ‘Wellbeing Centre’ which provides courses focusing on cultivating physical, emotional and mental balance and wellbeing. They include authentic traditional and modern psychological approaches to health and lifestyle. They are suitable for everyone who maybe looking for genuine happiness and well-being in a non-religious framework.
