An unruly mind is not only the cause of our own difficulties and suffering but also an obstacle to developing kindness and compassion for others. Unwanted distractions undermine our attempts to develop the wisdom and compassion necessary to achieve our potential and benefit those around us. Calm Abiding, also known as Shamatha practice, pacifies those distractions leaving the mind calm, clear and flexible.

Calm Abiding is the ideal practice for a busy life creating a strong and stable base of calm and relaxation we can return to whenever we are feeling stressed or overwhelmed. When we are feeling stronger it gives us the undistracted focus to be of greater benefit to ourselves and others.

Please wear loose comfortable clothing for sitting and a yoga mat if you would like to meditate in a laying down position.

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 check Chenrezig Institute Calendar for updated information. Lunch additional, booking required by 10am. Also below the far carpark is ‘The 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.
