Notes and Events:

Four Winds is located 80 ks south of Cairns, North Queensland, on a 66 acre property, 26 acres of which is in World Heritage rainforest. The property is close to rainforest, waterfalls and pristine beaches. It is an idyllic place to develop a meditation centre.

Peter and Nancy Cowham are the Directors of Four Winds. Both have a long association with Buddhist meditation and practice. Nancy was one of the early lay residents at Wat Buddha Dhamma after it was founded in 1978.

Peter spent five pansahs as a bhikkhu in NE Thailand between 1977 and 1983. His uppacchaya was Venerable Luang Por Chah of Wat Pah Pong. Peter was privileged to have practiced under Luang Por for he last five years of his effective teaching life before diabetes debilitated the famous Ajahn. Peter learnt to speak and read Thai and Lao and compiled translations of Luang Por\\\\\\\'s talks during the time he spent with him. A recent pilgrimage to visit Ajahn Chah\\\\\\\'s memorial at Wat Bah Pong has inspired Peter and Nancy to reconnect with their heritage and make available a retreat facility for Buddhist meditation and practice in the forest tradition of Thailand and Lao.

The developing facility is available for meditation and other related courses by appointment. Camping facilities and a meditation hall will be available once completed. Organizations wishing to utilize the centre should contact Four Winds by email on cde.fourwinds@gmail.com Meditation sessions are held regularly. Please phone or email for a current schedule.

Anyone wishing to visit Four Winds must ring first and be willing to observe the Pancasila while on the property. Courses will be advertised on our website (when it is completed).

Help for the Dying and Their Carers

Birth and death, sickness and health, are part of the reality of human existence. In particular, our attitude towards dying and death makes a great deal of difference to the way in which we experience them. Wheel of Life - Hospice Service offers training so that each of us can prepare for our own death.

Helping others wherever one can, according to their needs, is the true expression of compassion. Wheel of Life – Hospice Service aims to offer this gift of affection and love, companionship and emotional and spiritual support to those individuals and their families who are facing life-threatening illness, to the dying, to those who have died and to those who are left grieving.

The Coordinator of the Wheel of Life-Hospice Service is Venerable  Losang Chodron.

Wheel of Life is a community service of the Hayagriva Buddhist Centre.
