Finding Freedom: Meditations on the Mind with Rob Gillow – series 4

31 July @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm AEST


About Event:

“One should stabilise the mind in meditative concentration, since a person whose mind is distracted lives between the fangs of mental afflictions.”  Shantideva: A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life.

Operating from within the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, we often overlook our most essential relationship, the one that we have with ourselves. Caught up in the currents of responsibilities, commitments, and the constant clamour of distractions, we seldom prioritise the simple act of being present with our own minds. Even during those rare moments dedicated to relaxation—a leisurely walk or a session in the sauna—our minds often remain entangled in the relentless cycles of stress, planning, and the quest for relief from worries, anxieties, fears, and boredom.

After the successful 3 rounds of six weeks, Rob has kindly offered to continue these Wednesday evening sessions and starts new series of the whole program again on 17th July. This program, consisting of 6 x 1.5hr sessions is an invitation to learn/relearn/practise some of the essential skills associated with the art of being present with our own minds. The practices, known traditionally as Shamatha and Vipassana, focus on the cultivation of mindfulness and insight. Together these meditation practices provide a genuine path to inner wellness, and outer harmony.

Ideally, it is best to make the commitment to attend the full 6 weeks as the sessions will build upon one another, but also feel free to drop into any sessions individually.

The sessions are all held in the Well Being Centre.


About the meditation leader:

Based on the Sunshine Coast, Robert Gillow is a counsellor, psychotherapist, and meditation facilitator. He has maintained a longstanding relationship with Chenrezig Institute since 2010, and over the past decade has dedicated much time to meditation retreat and immersion in the study of Tibetan Buddhist teachings.

Most recently he has completed a Bachelor of Counselling & Psychotherapy, enhancing his professional expertise and passion in the realm of mental health and spiritual well-being. He currently operates his psychotherapy business Eastern Sun Therapies from the Well-being Centre on Thursdays.


A contribution of $15 is suggested for each session (ie $90 for all six) but – under our new by donation policy, you may pay whatever you feel comfortable with.

A payment from you of $5 or $10 will be very helpful

A payment from you of $15  each time will cover our basic costs.

And of course any extra generous donation will help us to continue to offer other teachings to so many – often subsidised or free of charge.
