Discovering Buddhism: The Spiritual Teacher Retreat Weekend

13 November @ 9:00 am - 14 November @ 3:45 pm AEST

Hybrid Event
$40
General program teaching With Ven Tony

About Event:

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 retreat, we reflect on the teachings and instruction from The Spiritual Teacher module of the Discovering Buddhism programme.

It also continues the exploration of the lam-rim, the graduated path to enlightenment, and provides an opportunity to meditate on some of the key points.

The retreat provides a chance to ask questions about the teachings and participate in group discussions. It is an excellent opportunity to clear away any doubts you may have, or for those studying at home or online to enjoy group practice and meditation.

 Everyone is welcome to attend this retreat weekend, even if you haven‘t attended the previous modules.

about teacher:

Ven Chokyi leaves in October to take up a teaching post in WA. Her place during this retreat weekend will be taken by Ven Tony Beaumont.

Ven Tony first made contact with the Buddha-dharma in Nepal and India in 1976. Following this, he trained and worked for four years as a psychiatric nurse, and then in the 1980s was based at Chenrezig Institute during which time he served at different times as the cook, office worker, and gardener.

Following ordination as a monk in1991, he lived for seventeen years at Nalanda Monastery in France, and served as a director at Thubten Shedrup Ling monastery in Bendigo. He has led retreats and courses at various FPMT centres throughout the world, as well as teaching in prisons and schools.
