The 16 Guidelines are a set of practical and straightforward tools for developing happiness and meaning in everyday life. Inspired by a seventh-century Tibetan text, the 16 Guidelines are being used by people worldwide to transform problems and create happiness and wellbeing.

Launched in 2006, they have been adopted and introduced in schools, colleges, hospices, drug rehab centres, prisons and workplaces across five continents. The 16 Guidelines are part of an initiative called Essential Education, which proposes that developing our natural capacity for compassion and wisdom is the key to making our lives happier and more peaceful – and to being able to make a positive contribution in the world.

The 16 Guidelines are not a set of commandments or quick fixes. Instead, they offer an opportunity to explore your own life experiences. Divided into four themes and represented by a role model, you can use them to experiment with new ways of thinking, acting, relating to others and finding meaning in your life.

Explore:

  • How we think - Everything we say and do arises from our thoughts
  • How we act - Every skillful action makes a better world
  • How we relate to others - Every time we cherish others we are cherishing ourselves
  • How we find meaning - If everything is changing, anything is possible

You don't have to be Buddhist to come along; in fact, this is a course specially designed to convey the essences of Buddhist philosophy in everyday language for people from any or no spiritual tradition. The course is run as two separate workshops giving students time to reflect on their experiences, develop their understanding and try out the practical strategies between the two. Students who can only attend one of the two workshops scheduled will be supported with follow up opportunities to complete the course.

Workshop One: Saturday 8 April 9.00 am - Sunday 9 April 4.30 pm, in the Gompa at Chenrezig Institute. Facility fee $100*

Workshop Two: Saturday 20 May 9.00 am - Sunday 21 May 4.30 pm, in the Gompa at Chenrezig Institute. Facility fee $100*

Or book both workshops for the discounted price of $175* *10% discount for members and concession card holders. Accommodation and meals available separately. Meals must be booked before 10.00 am on the day of the event.

Established 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers 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 formal garden, espresso in the cafe or a vegetarian meal. Teachers' availability subject to change; please http://www.chenrezig.com.au/programme/calendar/ for updated information.
