Chenrezig Institute Event Calendar
Dharma Toolkit with Miffi Maxmillion – Day 2
24 September @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm AEST
An illustrated and interactive beginner’s workshop on everything you ever wanted to know about Tibetan Buddhist rituals but were afraid to ask!
We may often feel awkward or even slightly embarrassed performing rituals of a culture different to our own, and until we learn the meaning and integrate it into our inner practice, they remain just pleasant artistic activities or slightly twee performances.
But with understanding, Buddhist ritual becomes a powerful connector to inner transformation and growth. It is a means of unifying body, speech, and mind into a sum greater than its parts. It is also a method to confront our assumptions about reality, what’s ‘real’ and what’s merely make-believe, and thus begin integrating the philosophical teachings on emptiness with our own lived experience.
This course is a great introduction for beginners to combine Buddhist philosophy with daily practice. It is also an engaging refresher for returning students, to check they have all the ingredients for a stable and flourishing Dharma practice. Each session will have an illustrated presentation, with an opportunity for interactive questions and answers.
Two days are scheduled – there was a first one in August and now this one on 24th September. Students may attend single days but of course it is recommended to attend both.
For those able to stay on, there will be practice sessions in the evenings of both days.

Miffi Maxmillion runs the spiritual program at Langri Tangpa, the FPMT centre in Brisbane, and is a registered FPMT teacher. Miffi was brought up a Buddhist and had the great good fortune to play with Lama Yeshe as a child. His hook of compassion sustained her through the many rebellious stages of growing up. She took refuge with Lama Yeshe at age 10 and did her first Lamrim and Nyung Na retreats with Lama Zopa Rinpoche at age 16.
She left behind a thriving haute couture and costume business to help her mother Inta Mckimm, who established Langri Tangpa Centre, when she became sick with cancer. Packing her bags for two weeks, she ended up continuing her mother’s life work. She is still there, teaching classes and leading pumas with great enthusiasm and joy, over twenty years later!
Miffi’s passion is in bridging the seemingly disparate worlds of modern life and the rich inner experience of Buddhist practice. She readily admits to watching far too much late-night TV and is an avid New Yorker Magazine reader.
You may register to attend at the centre in person or as an online participant. All sessions will be sent out on Zoom and also uploaded to YouTube for later viewing. Links will be sent out to participants in their tickets after registration.
