Event Details

The last six months have been challenging for us all. With the Centre closed during this time, many students have experienced the loss of connection to friends and community that teachings at Vajrayana Institute provide. However, the introduction of our comprehensive streamed programme has been very effective in turning the wheel in Dharma not just in Sydney but well beyond.

As the health crisis recedes, with rates of virus transmission very low, we are planning the gradual re-introduction of live courses. Our aim is to go slowly so that we can maintain the highest standards of hygiene and have a safe environment for our visitors, teachers, and residents. We also want to continue to offer the convenience of online courses that so many of you have enjoyed.

The first stage of our planned re-opening is to offer in-person classes, Friday to Sunday. This will include meditation sessions, weekend courses, and teachings from Geshe-la. We are hoping that this can be followed by full re-opening in the near future.

All events will be subject to strict capacity constraints to comply with government health guidelines and our staff and volunteers will administer Covid-safe protocols such as having all students well-spaced within the gompa, ensuring that teaching spaces remain well-ventilated and that surfaces are cleaned before and after classes.  We are asking those returning to in-person classes to be respectful of these guidelines and, of course, to remain home if they have any cold-like symptoms.

All this involves extra work for our event management team, so if you have time please express your interest in volunteering here.
