Meditation Day Courses

Explore a specific topic in more detail at one of our full-day or half-day meditation courses at the East Fremantle Centre.

Learn to Meditate

Sat 7 Mar · 9.30am–1.30pm

Meditation is a way of calming the mind, reducing stress and developing a more positive approach to life. This course provides a perfect opportunity to discover for yourself the inner peace and happiness that naturally arise when our mind becomes still.

Introduction To Buddhism

Sat 14 Mar · 9.30am–1.30pm

2,500 years after the passing of Buddha, his example and teachings still resonate. This half-day course will explain the essential principles of the Buddhist way of life and how we can gain personal benefit from applying these teachings in our busy modern life. We will also learn how we can use meditation as a tool for developing good qualities such as inner peace, love and compassion.

Silencing the Inner Critic

Sat 28 Mar · 10.00am–4.30pm

We all have an unhelpful inner critic. It not only disturbs our mental peace but actually holds us back from being the person we want to be and from living the way we really want to live.

Special Events

We hold many special events throughout the year from special public talks with visiting International Teachers to away weekends and in-depth Buddhist classes and courses.

Meditation Retreats

Get away from it all and connect with your inner peace. We hold retreats at the Centre as well as general away retreats, silent retreats and Buddhist retreats throughout the year.
