Forest Glen: Events

Inviting Well-being Techniques for Balance and Flourishing Dr B Alan Wallace Innovation Centre USC

Well-being is a skill that can be learned. Just as people can use diet and exercise to improve physical health, they can also train in techniques that increase mental health and resilience.

Some of these techniques have stood the test of time in ancient contemplative traditions and more recently stood the test of scientific rigour. Modern psychology and neuroscience have found some of these ancient techniques to be critical in cultivating twenty-first century well-being.

In this workshop, you will learn about these techniques, how to implement them, and what benefits to expect from practising them. For decades Alan Wallace has pioneered the exploration of the common ground of science and contemplative traditions and teaches how to successfully harnesses the full potential of both.

Venue: Innovation Centre, University of the Sunshine Coast. The Innovation Centre is the very first building on the right as you enter the university campus. Please note: You will need to pay for a days parking at USC, which is AUD5. Each car-park has a pay machine. Tickets do not need to be displayed (computerised system).

Join thejm for a guided meditation and discussion on Wednesday evenings in Maroochydore. Your donations help them to keep this program running.

Established in 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat, and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Today, the Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreatants, 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 the formal garden, sip espresso in the caf?, have a vegetarian meal, drop in for a meditation class or teaching, or just sit and listen to life.
