Overview
More
Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat, and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in Queensland, Australia. Established in 1974 Chenrezig Institute was one of the first Tibetan Buddhist centre in the Western World and remains one of the largest.Today, the Institute is home to a Tibetan Lama, a large community of Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreatants, and guests. Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in the formal garden, sip espresso in the café,have a vegetarian meal, drop in for a meditation class or teaching, or just sit and listen to life.

I am a regular visitor these days to Chenrezig Institute. I have always found it a place of tranquility. It is pen to the public Thursday to Sunday. It’s best to book if you wish to have lunch.

Met up with some other ladies here and had lunch. This is a beautiful place and is wonderful to come close to nature. It is very serene and rewarding to the senses.

Learn more about how to live authentically, have a cup of their chai and a piece of decadent cake and soak up a way of life that just makes sense.

We are so fortunate for the opportunity to be inspired by so many precious teachers at Chenrezig. I always come away feeling so enriched from spending time with people full of compassion & kindness.
