Public Schedule


Queenstown Dharma Centre,  NZ, November 14 – 22, 2020
Breathing Sanity
contemplative conversations and teachings
with Tarchin Hearn

Living in turbulent times.
Yearning for goodness.
Bowled over by pandemics of fear and grasping and fortress behaviour.

Tentatively feeling our way towards meaningful ways of being.
Not back to normal but onward to
Something Beautiful for the World.

The week will begin with an exploration of the vision and implications of what in Buddhism is sometimes called “Ekayāna” – a way of living that is thoroughly non-sectarian and universal in nature. This is dharma in action which, given the multiple crises in the world today, is more necessary than ever.

Classes will happen on Saturday and Sunday mornings and Tues, Wed, and Thurs evenings.

Wangapeka Study and Retreat Centre, New Zealand, Feb. 12 – 25, 2021
Wisdom, Compassion and Non-Clinging Awareness
– a residential retreat –

Meaningful living begins with an intuition,
life, as vast-mystery-unfolding,
birthing the deeply compelling question;
how to live well in the midst of this dancing of everything and everyone.

Clarifying this natural state of being,
radical interconnectivity, creative and constantly dynamic.
Cultivating skills in primordial contemplation,
complete attunement and skilful engagement.

Discovering no-name sanity.
The ancients might have called this
Primordial Dharma.
Continuously transient, extravagantly creative,
competently and confidently home.

The retreat will be a precious opportunity to pause and refresh and re-evaluate everything. Day by day, inviting a flow of contemplation, meditation, discussion and movement while living with and on the land, we will explore the meeting point of mindfulness and deep ecology and our place in the world.
