A Day of Meditation on the Four Immeasurables in the Wellbeing Centre with TY Alexander

12 May @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm AEST

TY for weekend course

about the event

“…I like to dance in the pressure storm…I like it because that’s where…most of the time I bring out my best tennis…I think pressure is a privilege, to be honest.”

These are the words of Jannik Sinner, the 22 -year-old winner of the 2024 Australian Open men’s tennis final. When I read them I thought this is advice for living in the pressure storm of our world today. We all live in a pressure storm.

We can fight it.

Or we can dance.

Buddhist teachings tell us that developing equanimity, compassion, loving-kindness and sympathetic joy is the way to live happily, the way to dance, in the pressure storm.

These four qualities are called The Four Immeasurables. Come along for a day of contemplation on these four. And discover what a privilege it is to accept the challenge.

About our teacher:

Since 1974, TY Alexander has been a student of Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche, as well as many other teachers, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama.   Following her first one-month Kopan retreat, she studied in Nepal and India, during which time she was ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist nun. She remained a nun for 9 years and has lived in Australia since 1985. TY has taught at Chenrezig Institute many times over a long time on subjects as diverse as Introduction to Meditation and Mahamudra and has led various tantric retreats.
