Meditation – Happy Mind, Happy Life!

Weekly meditation Monday evenings from 4th September 2017  following Theme 4 of the 16 Guidelines, 'How We Find Meaning’ - if everything is changing, anything is possible. The 16 Guidelines come from the inspirational values and principles that the great 7th century Tibetan King, Songtsen Gampo, introduced to his people - methods and tools "to make life better". They played a crucial part in changing Tibet from a warlike nation into a civilization renowned for its peace and serenity. The 16 Guidelines are an excellent framework for improving your own life, as well as providing tools for helping others. Includes brief instructions and guided meditations - suitable for new and seasoned meditators. Come any week. 6.30pm - 7.30pm (Cost: free) Manly Meditation Group (www.vajrayana.com.au) About the Facilitator Phil Hunt has taken part in Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreats and teachings in Tibet, Nepal, India, USA, Australia and elsewhere and has lead meditation classes for many years.

Justice Rachel Pepper Land and Environment Court of NSW, appointed to the Ngara Yura Committee in March 2012 Will be holding the address at the coming YarnUp Justice Rachel Pepper was appointed as a Judge of the Land and Environment Court of NSW in May 2009. From 1997 until her appointment in 2009, she was a barrister at the NSW Bar. Rachel’s principal areas of practice were general commercial law and public law, including Aboriginal land rights. She has long since held an interest in Indigenous legal issues, both civil and criminal. While at the Bar, she was the Co-coordinator of the Aboriginal Legal Service/NSW Bar Association Pro Bono Barrister Scheme. The scheme was established to permit barristers to voluntarily assist the Aboriginal Legal Service in defending accused Indigenous persons in criminal matters. Membership of the Committee will assist in facilitating a greater understanding and appreciation of the complexity of issues, both legal and non-legal, affecting Aboriginal persons today."
