Coming Events

Newcomers Introduction & Ganapuja Explanation

22 November        11am to 2pm
Fleming Park Hall

If you’ve been to a retreat, listened to a webcast or attended a World Wide Transmission with Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, but are feeling a little lost as to what it is all about and where to begin, we warmly invite you to come along to our newcomers introduction with Angie Gilbert.

Angie is an authorised Santi Maha Sangha teacher, and long-time student of Rinpoche and member of the Dzogchen Community. With warmth and understanding, Angie will go through some of the fundamentals of the practice.

Angie will also give an explanation of the Ganapuja, which we practice 4 times a month at Samyas Ling, after which we will practice the Short Ganapuja together.

This is a wonderful opportunity for newcomers to connect further with the practice.

If you need any more information, please contact Paul on 0410 288 487.

*** Please bring along an offering of food or wine for the Ganapuja ***

A refresher course in the Dance of the 3 Vajras
and Khalongdorjeikar

23 November        3 to 6pm
Fleming Park Hall

Lynne Geary, authorised Vajra Dance teacher, will hold a short refresher in the Dance of the Three Vajras as well as complete instruction in the Khalongdorjeikar (Dance of 12A).

This course is for especially for those who have recently learned the Dance of the Three Vajras. Please know that regular dance practices are held on Thursdays and Sundays at Fleming Park Hall, which you are welcome to attend before this course.
