Important News at WELL-AWARE-NESS
We are all aware of the reality of change and impermanence, the underlying fabric of existence that we live our life from.
I have now been teaching meditation groups/classes and courses in Sydney since 1995 which have been well attended and much appreciated by so many people.
My work has also included my Psychology Practice and consulting work to various organisations and industries in and around Sydney.
Recently the landlord of 14 Ridge Street, where Well-Aware-Ness operates from, has informed me that his wish is to renovate and restructure these premises which will mean Well-Aware-Ness moving. This change may mean that I then focus my work through Well-Aware-Ness on the Tweed and Gold Coast from January 2017.
As the landlord/owner of this building does not have his DA through council yet, we still live with some uncertainty as to the exact date in 2017 that this will occur.
However, I am open to ideas and suggestions that may enable me to continue to work in Sydney.
In the meantime, I would very much encourage you all to make good use of Well-Aware-Ness and my presence here in Sydney through the Weekly Meditation Groups, Urban Retreats, Counselling and Coaching support.
For those on the Tweed Coast, this may become an opportunity for greater access to my work of Psychology Meditation.
Our Next Event: Ajahn Tiradhammo – Buddhist Monk
Venerable Ajahn Tiradhammo, one of the world’s most senior western Theravada Forest Monks, will be visiting Well-Aware-Ness Sydney offering teachings through our Weekly Thursday Meditation Groups – both morning and evening – on 25th February 2016.
In addition, Ajahn Tiradhammo will be offering a Saturday Urban Meditation Retreat on 27th February 2016 – ‘Bringing it All Together’.
For those on the Tweed Coast, Ajahn Tiradhammo will be offering a Saturday Meditation Retreat on 28th May 2016.
This will be a wonderful occasion to receive teachings and guidance from a very experienced Meditation Teacher and Buddhist Practitioner.
Let’s make the most of this year together,
ps Hope you enjoy this photo of Ajahn Tiradhammo and myself at Dhammapala Monestary (Switzerland) from 1991
