LOOKING FOR A RENTAL
LOOKING FOR A RENTAL WHILE WE BUILD
We are a mature, professional couple looking to rent a house for 6-12 months while we build near Glenorchy. We are hoping to be able to move down early in 2018, but don’t have a fixed date yet. We’d prefer an unfurnished house, at least 2 bedrooms. Don’t mind if it is out of town; given the pressure on the rental market we are prepared to look at anything. We do have a dog – huntaway/border collie cross – so a fence would be good!

FIND HAPPINESS WITHIN
hello dear friends,
when i found this magical place and created my personal home here i realized that i had an opportunity to make many more of my dreams come true.
one of them was to host a spiritual retreat and to fill the house with like minded people to share, learn and celebrate together.
i am very pleased to announce that this is happening in february!
as my place is quite small, there are only 15 people who can attend.
i recently met and practiced with the rinpoche in california and his approach is gentle and accessible to all.
if this resonates with you, please take advantage of this special opportunity to be in the company of this sincerely gifted and committed teacher.

Finding Happiness Within: Reconnecting with Your Natural State of Mind Through Pristine Mind Meditation
“Happiness isn’t something we need to find or achieve. It is the very core of our being.”
- Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche
Join meditation master Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche for this special weekend program based on his book Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to Unconditional Happiness.
Right now, we can feel and experience anger, stress, and other uncomfortable states of mind. But we don’t experience the pristine natural state of mind that lies within us. During this two-day retreat, Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will teach us how we can feel not only our thoughts, but can actually experience our Pristine Mind in every moment through Pristine Mind Meditation.
Many people are familiar with mindfulness meditation. Using mindfulness as a basis, Pristine Mind meditation is an approach to meditation without an object that helps us find happiness within, dispels toxins and distortions of mind, and brings about greater health and a deep sense of well-being.
Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will provide precise, experiential instructions and guided meditations drawn from the Dzogchen mind-class teachings making the life-transforming realization of the pristine nature of mind attainable for all. These teachings are deeply relevant whether we are just seeking a happier life or are pursuing the spiritual journey all the way to enlightenment.
No background with meditation is necessary.
Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche is a meditation master in the Nyingma lineage of the Buddhist tradition. He studied for nine years at Larung Gar in Serta, Eastern Tibet, with his teacher, Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche, who is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest Dzogchen meditation masters of the twentieth century. A long-time resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche is the founder and spiritual director of Pristine Mind Foundation and the author of Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to Unconditional Happiness.
