Although true spiritual experience comes through our own hard work and development, a good teacher is essential. We rely on a qualified teacher to show us the way to understanding, in the same way that we rely on an experienced guide to get us through unfamiliar territory.

In this course, we investigate the role of the teacher on the spiritual path. We will also look at the qualities of a teacher and of a student, how to avoid common mistakes and how to cultivate a teacher-student relationship for the greatest benefit in our spiritual practice.

Although it is part of the Discovering Buddhism programme, anyone is welcome to attend – you do not have to have attended previous modules.

Having met the Dharma in 1990, Venerable Chokyi ordained with Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche in 2006. Venerable Chokyi is a resident teacher at Chenrezig Institute where she has been leading meditation and teaching foundation Buddhist studies, such as Discovering Buddhism. She has also led retreats for many years.

Venerable Chokyi has been the Director of Liberation Prison Project since 2010. Prior to ordination, she taught at university and in the community sector for over 20 years.

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.

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.
