JOURNEY INTO NOW 2022
Guest Speaker – Gravity Discovery Centre Richard Tonello (Chief Astronomer)
Each year the Buddhist Society of WA hosts a variety of events at our centre in Nollamara while our usual teachers, the monks and nuns, go on their own personal retreat.
Our sessions always start off with a guided meditation from 7:30-8pm to melt away the stress from your week so you can relax into your weekend. Come a little earlier so you can have a cuppa or you are welcome to join us from 8-9pm for the main act.
For more events please follow us on Eventbrite or Facebook (search Dhammaloka events).
All are welcome.
Join us for a journey into the cosmos
A long time ago in a galaxy far away……….
Actually let’s forward to this galaxy this year! Senior astronomer, Richard Tonello from the Gravity Discovery Centre observatory in Gingin, is coming to Dhammaloka for a special presentation. Richard will not only take us on a journey through space but he will also go through the recent images of ancient galaxies taken from Nasa’s James Webb space telescope.
As Arthur C Clarke said “Astronomy, as nothing else can do, teaches men humility”. A sentiment shared by Richard Tonello who ‘advises people that they get a far greater connection to the meaning of life by simply learning about what is out there’.
Everyone is welcome for this family friendly event.
7:30pm: Guided meditation
8:00pm: Gravity Discovery Centre Presentation followed by QnA
You are welcome to come earlier for a cuppa and biscuits!
Please note this is a drug and alcohol free venue.
We welcome everyone regardless of sexuality, gender, religion.
