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 friendly yet peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks in our varied accommodation. Visit our Gompa on the hill, past the prayer wheel, stroll along the bush paths, wander in the formal Garden Of Enlightenment & around the Stupas. Enjoy an espresso & cake in the cafe or book in for a vegetarian meal, pop into our shop or relax in our extensive library.
Also below the carpark is our new addition ‘The Wellbeing Centre’ which provides courses focusing on cultivating physical, emotional and mental balance and wellbeing. They include authentic traditional and modern psychological approaches to health and lifestyle. They are suitable for everyone who maybe looking for genuine happiness and well-being in a non-religious framework.
