Current Class Topic

Anger Management.

Wednesday 12, 19 Jun
(Public Talk on the 26 Jun. See more details below)

Can you fight for what you believe in without anger? Does anger create change or does it stifle it? Is anger a natural part of being human? Is it necessary or is there a way to set clear boundaries from a calm place of compassion without anger?

Buddhism reveals a peaceful path of kindness and compassion where the fire of anger is extinguished and our heart can be at peace at all times and in all situations.

Join this special three week course to learn clear and effective meditations to manage our anger and maintain our calm - however challenging those around us may be.


The teacher of this class is Christielli Portela. Christielli has been teaching modern Kadampa Buddhism for a decade. As an experienced and well-loved teacher, she inspires people to use Buddhist meditation to improve their lives through her sincere example and clear teachings.

Happiness, Confidence & The Power of the Mind - Ballarat Public Talk.

Meditation is a way of calming the mind, reducing stress and developing a more positive approach to life. This public talk with Buddhist Nun Kelsang Luma is the perfect opportunity to experience for yourself the inner peace and happiness that naturally arises when our mind becomes still. This feeling of inner peace will help us to cope with the busyness and difficulties of daily life and we will feel warm and well disposed towards other people thereby improving our relationships.
