Buddhism

The basic message of Buddhism is simple:

  • we can’t depend on anything to be permanent
  • our actions have consequences
  • we can change for the better
  • Buddhism speaks to all kinds of people regardless of their gender, gender identity,  race,  sexuality or nationality.

We present a range of courses, classes, seminars and retreats for beginners and experienced practitioners alike, offering the opportunity to expand your understanding of Buddhism, its principles and practices.

Brunswick, Victoria 3056 Australia
$50 – $70
