Notes and Events:

The groups that make up the Coast and City Sangha ( Goolwa Dharma Group  and Ashtree Sangha  follow a broad, secular approach.  

This approach values what it is that people actually experience, both in meditation and in daily life.  Within the framework of the teachings of the Buddha, this approach gives us a way to explore, and come to understand more about, these experiences and our inner worlds.

We encourage you to approach meditation with gentleness and curiosity, allowing your own unique experience to unfold naturally;  being open to, and cultivating awareness of, the rich variety of experiences that make up our inner lives, and coming to appreciate in a new way even those aspects we may usually view as unacceptable or mundane

Ashtree Sangha meets on the second Sunday of every month from February to December, upstairs at the Hatha Yoga Shala, 172 Hutt Street, Adelaide. Sangha meetings run from 3 to 5pm.  

 The Goolwa Dharma Group is based at the Middleton Pioneer Hall, Walker Place, Middleton or see map below. We meet fortnightly on a Monday 10.00 to 12.00 noon. 

For more information, contact Anna  ( Ashtree Sangha ) or Barb ( Goolwa Dharma Group )

  • Shenpen is a world-wide network of volunteer organisations that support the work of Dzogchen Shri Senha Charitable Society (DSSCS), an Indian registered charity. DSSCS specialises in healthcare, educational and social welfare projects for the Dhondenling Tibetan settlement and the local Indian community in Karnataka state, South India. Guided by Dzogchen Rinpoche, the international sangha have established Shenpen in America, Australia, France, Germany, Holland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

    Shenpen also helps preserve the unique cultural and spiritual heritage of Tibet and hosts Dzogchen Rinpoche's international teaching tours every year.

    The word shenpen comes from the Tibetan shen la phenpa, which literally means to bring benefit to others. Dzogchen Rinpoche has dedicated his life to charitable service and works tirelessly to improve the quality of life of so many people. As an example of wisdom in action, Dzogchen Rinpoche guides his students so that their lives can make a positive difference and bring lasting benefit to all.
