Sundays, 6pm in Brisbane

Developing a meditation practice is so much easier with the support of a group. Every Sunday evening from 6pm – 8pm, join us as we explore the liberating insights and practices taught by the Buddha. Each week we host experienced contemporary meditation teachers, who give talks on various aspects of the practice.

Cost is by donation. The teachings are considered beyond a monetary value so instead the tradition of dana (generosity) is practiced. Those that wish to support the continuation of the group and the teacher’s offerings, can do so via donation boxes on the night.

Find us

We sit together at Haiku Arts and Yoga Studio which is located just under the ‘Wrapture’ restaurant on Russell St, a few doors down from West End post office. Head down the concrete ramp and open the sliding door.

Victor von der Heyde & Lulu Cook – Dharma Panel
Sep 15 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Victor von der Heyde & Lulu Cook - Dharma Panel

Join us on September 15th for the special premiere of the Dharma Panel. An opportunity to ask the questions you’ve always wanted to! Breaking from our usual Sunday night proceedings there will no specific theme, instead Victor and Lulu will be sharing the dharma Q&A style. Questions will be a mix of those submitted previously and some spontaneous on the night.

No question is too big or too small. It could be about personal practice (how to stop falling asleep when I meditate?), life and relationships (how can practice help me off my coffee addiction?),  the esoteric (can monks actually read minds?), controversial (can psychedelics be helpful on the path?) or even about the teacher’s practice (most significant experience/insight?).

To submit a question email or add it to the donation bowls over the next few Sunday nights. Please note due to time constraints only a selection of submitted questions will be answered. Don’t delay, submit it now!
