The veranda around the upper floor of the building provides ample space for a quiet sitting for meditation.

Visitors from all walks of life and religious beliefs are welcome to visit the temple. All the residents in the immediate neighbourhood consider the temple as a valuable addition to the forest setting of the area. They all appreciate the harmless, non-invasive and peaceful life of the monks and the devotees. It recommended that one should visit the temple just to experience the ambiance of the place.

Sensible attire with white or lighter colours is welcome. While at the temple, speak little and act in a disciplined manner.

Alms giving for the monks have been arranged for the days of the month. Please telephone the resident monks to organize alms giving for a special occasion.

Notes and Events:

Cittamani Hospice Service provides professional palliative care to people who are dying and their families. We offer compassionate care and honour clients’ individual choices.

We aim to provide the highest quality service from the time of diagnosis through to the bereavement period. Our belief is that this service is best provided in a healthy and supportive community where death, dying and bereavement are openly discussed and accepted.

The promotion of healthy dying requires terminally ill adults and children to have a choice in where and how they spend their remaining life. To support this choice a range of inpatient and community services are required to ensure continuity of care. The availability of knowledgeable networks of community members is vital to the success of this process.

To Cittamani Hospice Service, a hospice is a holistic approach to care rather than a place.

Our service includes:

  • holistic client-centred care
  • hospice-at-home program
  • multidisciplinary teamwork
  • community participation
  • hospital/general practitioner/community services collaboration
  • bereavement support program
  • community and professional education in issues of death and dying

Cittamani Hospice Service exists within a comprehensive and integrated health network and acts as a model for community-based hospice services both within Australia and overseas.

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).
