A centre for Buddhist study, meditation and retreat.


Chenrezig Institute is temporarily closed to the public.

We understand the seriousness of this pandemic and have temporarily closed all areas of the Centre to the public. We are following the Government’s advice closely to take care of our community of Sangha, staff, volunteers and residents. We will provide updates via our Facebook page, via eNews and this website. We look forward to welcoming you all back very soon. Big love from all of us! 

We value your support

Together we can all be of support to one another and to all. 

Our hope is that Chenrezig Institute’s online program can be a source of inspiration to practice wisdom and compassion in these challenging times. 

Please consider donating what you can today. Your contribution allows us to continue offering online and other events in the future. Every contribution is of tremendous benefit and deeply appreciated.

We’re teaching online!  

We are delivering engaging and beneficial online teachings and events with various teachers. Teachers  include Geshe Tsultrim, Venerable Chokyi, Venerable Kartson, Outreach groups with Peter Shepherd and Alan Carter, and Yoga with Erin Ashley.

We are doing our best to make these online events as easy as possible to join and engage in. 

As a Dharma community we feel it is important to offer what we can to those connected with the Centre already and to anyone who may benefit from the Buddhadharma in these times.
