This teaching includes a 30 minute guided meditation, followed by a Dhamma talk by Dennis. Dennis Sheppard has been involved with the Buddhist community since 1976, joining the Buddhist Society of Western Australia in 1978 as a young man interested in meditation and spiritual practice. He went on to serve multiple terms as president, as well as serving in several other capacities including designing several buildings for both monastics and the lay community. Dennis’s talks delve deep to explore reality, deep meditation and the meaning of life. Dennis was recently awarded life membership for his services.
Every year, the monastic community (Monks and nuns) go on a three month retreat called the “Rains Retreat” from mid July to mid October. During this period, they do not visit our centres for teachings as it’s a time for deepening their own practice.
While the monks and nuns are away, we will have some interesting guest speakers coming in to give the Friday Night talk.
TURNING POINTS 2023 (Rains Retreat Speakers’ Series 2023). Hear stories of everyday dhamma as told by monastics and lay practitioners from various Buddhist traditions.
