Event description
Interested in courses on Buddhism, meditation and emotions, but unsure where to begin? Join our beginner's welcome (talk, tour & tea).

About this Event

Come along to our beginner’s welcome and orientation, and enjoy a short guided meditation, information about the program and the centre, delicious chai tea afterwards, and free book to take home.

During our time together, you’ll meet our volunteers, have a guided tour, learn how to get involved, and be introduced to key concepts of Buddhist thought and practice.

"The centre is in this world to educate people … giving education in how to practice kindness toward others in everyday life." -- Lama Zopa Rinpoche, founder LTC

This get-together is a relaxed way to discover more about what our centre has to offer, and figure out which program areas will best suit you. Discover the in-person options, how easy it is to attend remotely online, and our new on-demand program to study in your own time and at your own pace.

Starting Point is held both online and in-person every few months (please check the calendar to confirm). This event is free.

  • Please stay home if feeling even slightly unwell, with any cold or flu like symptoms, as well as allergies.

About the Presenter

Miffi Maxmillion runs the spiritual program at Langri Tangpa Centre, and is an FPMT registered teacher. She left behind a thriving haute couture and costume business in Melbourne, when her mother Inta Mckimm (who ran LTC) became sick with cancer in 1997. Packing her bags for two weeks, she is still here over twenty years later! Miffi was brought up a Buddhist and had the great good fortune to play with Lama Yeshe as a child, and his hook of compassion sustained her through the many rebellious stages of growing up. Miffi's passion is in bridging the seemingly disparate worlds of modern life and the rich inner experience of Buddhist practice. She readily admits to watching far too much late night TV and is an avid New Yorker Magazine reader.

We seek to reflect their teachings throughout our program, and to support our principal inspiration, HH the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Following the inspirational example of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Langri Tangpa Buddhist Centre is dedicated to serving others with kindness and wisdom, and to educating people in ways to reduce suffering and promote the development of a more kind, compassionate and peaceful human family.
