I'm new, what do I do?

New to the centre? We've tried to include answers to some of the more common questions here.

We have both chairs and cushions to sit on, so you can wear what you are comfortable in. It is tradtional to remove your hat and shoes when entering the gompa (meditation hall). If you need to wear shoes for medical reasons it is perfectly OK to keep them on in the gompa! In fact, we hope you would be confident enough to automatically do so! Please keep your shoes on around the rest of the centre for saftey reasons, and remember to bring warm socks in winter!


Out of respect for the monks and nuns, we ask you to abide by the 'neck-to-knee' principle. This means in summer being mindful not to wear shorts (or wearing 3/4 length shorts, so that when you sit cross legged your knees are still covered), and avoiding strappy singlets. No sleeves is fine, but try to have the shoulders covered. If in doubt, bring a light sarong or scarf. We do have light blankets to put around your shoulders if you find the air-conditioning a bit chilly, and you can also use these to cover your knees for modesty purposes.



We have a small removable ramp that provides acces to the gompa (meditaion hall) from the main doors at street level. The diabledtoilet can be accessed from here. We also have a sloping pathway leading to the meditation room downstairs making it wheelchair accessible. Unfortunately we do not have acces up to the lounge or reception area yet. (We have been working on grant applications and other funding options for several years, and would appreciate any hekp you could offer in this area!)



Walk down the drive at the side of the church and come up the stairs to reception. Directly at the front door is a little table where you put your name on the day's roll and donation in the bowl (usually a suggested $5-$10). If you need change just ask at reception. Then please join us for tea and biscuits in the lounge/reception before class, and feel free to browse around the shop or the library. On the sideboard next to where you signed in there are calendars to take, short introductory books about Buddhism by donation, and an email list if you want to receive our monthly newsletter (please print clearly!). There is also a noticeboard with posters and pamphlets of coming events.



Generally, there is a suggested $5-$10 per class. The centre relies on your regular donations to keep the lights on, the computer running, and the tea and biscuits on the table. The suggested donation is a benchmark only, please pay what you are comfortable with! Some people donate more, others put in just a few coins. If you need change for the donation bowl please ask at reception. When we have visiting nuns lead courses here, we suggest a donation of $10-$20 so that we can make an offering to the nun to cover their travel expenses. Please don't ever let financial difficulty be the reason for not attending class. If Miffi finds out that is the reason you didn't come, she takes it personally and gets very upset!
