Half-Day Meditation Course

Saturday 2 May | 2.00pm – 5.00pm


Is it possible to be confident and relaxed as a parent instead of feeling stressed, overwhelmed and second guessing ourself all the time? Learning to apply simple meditation techniques, and using mindfulness, we can experience a place of calm inside even when our family life is busy, difficult or completely chaotic. Practically, if we develop a peaceful mind and our inner wisdom, this will give us the skill and confidence that we need to bring harmony and happiness to our family life.

In this course Chelvi will use both her own experience as a parent and Buddha’s time-tested teachings to share insights that you can use right now to help yourself and your family be healthy and positive.

The Teacher

This half-day meditation course will be led by Kadampa Buddhist Teacher, Chelvi Mailvaganan.

Chelvi has been studying and practising Kadampa Buddhism for nearly 20 years. She teaches from her own experience and wealth of knowledge, emphasising how to apply Buddhist methods to everyday life with insight and clarity.
