SAVES THE DATE! Buddhist Summer School 2023

January 11, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


37th Annual Buddhist Summer School
Start your New Year by immersing yourself in teachings from Theravada, Tibetan and Zen Buddhism.

Opening Forum
9:30am to 11am Saturday
The opening forum is an opportunity to hear the Summer School speakers engage in discussion of one of life’s big questions.
There will be an opportunity for audience members to ask questions.
The forum is free of charge and open to the public.



A rich tapestry of traditions has been woven by Asian cultures around the essence of

the teachings of the Buddha, who lived 2,500 years ago. The enduring nature of

Buddhism is symptomatic of its integrity as a spiritual discipline. Over the past

several decades Westerners have begun to learn from and participate in the diversity

and essence of Buddhism.


Over the 37 years since its founding, the annual Buddhist Summer School has

become one of the foremost gatherings in Australia for Buddhists from various

traditions to discuss and explore relevant topics, bringing insight and practical

advice from each tradition. The 37th annual Buddhist Summer School will offer

courses on Buddhist philosophy, practice and psychology by esteemed teachers.
