24 Hour Tara Chanting
We will be offering the special opportunity to do 24 Hour Tara Chanting following our New Year’s Eve Celebration.

Tara chanting helps to overcome obstacles in our lives and to help us create causes for future good fortune.

Arya Tara is a female Buddha, and her name means “Rescuer.” She is known for her wisdom & swift compassion and her ability to protect living beings from fear and danger.

This special way of engaging in Tara practice over a 24-hours is a very powerful method for removing inner and outer obstacles, such as sickness and misfortune. Each session is about 1 hr 10 min long, and are done every four hours.

Everyone is welcome to attend any or all the sessions. No experience is necessary.

You can drop in to any of the Tara Chanting sessions, they are free to join. If you would like to stay over please contact our Admin Director Sarah to make arrangements:

Here are some common questions that people ask about our meditation classes. If you have any other questions please contact us and we will be happy to help you in anyway.

Q) What is meditation?

The purpose of meditation is to cultivate positive states of mind, conducive to peace and well-being, and overcome negative habits of mind. Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external conditions. When our mind is peaceful we are free from worries and mental discomfort, and we experience true happiness.

Meditation is a technique used by millions of people to develop a calm and peaceful mind. It reduces stress, anxiety, and other negative states of mind and promotes physical and mental well-being. The meditations we guide are non-sectarian, non-judgemental, and universal. They are simple and accepted methods to help people tackle the stress and anxiety associated with the challenges of modern daily life.
