Are you searching for a meaningful activity to do with your children? Do you struggle to find activities that are based around supporting them to grow into happy and ethical people? If so, stop looking and carve out some time to join us for Dharma Club. We start the morning with a very short meditation to settle the breath and focus our mind on the time we will share. Often the children are less fidgety than the adults. The topic for the morning is introduced and a story is shared with the children to further develop their understanding of the topic. Often a short puppet show is then performed by selected children, this lets the kids demonstrate what they understand of the topic. Often kids are the best teachers of their peers. An explosion of glitter, glue, stickers and colour then follows with the much anticipated craft activity. Parents and children are free to leave whenever they like during the craft time. The topics for Dharma Club are based on the 16 Guidelines for Life, which are broken up into four categories, within each category are four topics. Each Dharma Club is framed around one of the topics, we move through them sequentially. How we Think (Humility, Patience, Contentment, Delight) How we Act (Kindness, Honesty, Generosity, Right Speech) How we Relate to Others (Respect, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Loyalty) How we Find Meaning (Aspiration, Principles, Service, Courage) If you would like to explore these principles in a Buddhist context please join us. Dharma Club is run entirely by volunteers, their availability influences whether it runs or not. We ask for a gold coin donation so we can replenish the craft supplies.  Sunday 5 February 10.15 am - 12.00 pm,

- In the Art Studio Children 5 and over welcome. All children must be supervised by their accompanying adult at all times. Accommodation and meals available separately. Meals must be booked before 9.30 am on the day of the event.

Established 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers and guests.

Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in formal garden, espresso in the cafe or a vegetarian meal.

Teachers’ availability subject to change; please refer http://www.chenrezig.com.au/programme/calendar/ for updated information.
