We have a largely materialistic lifestyle characterized by a materialistic culture. However, this only provides us with temporary, sensory satisfaction, whereas long-term satisfaction is based not on the senses but on the mind. That’s where real tranquility is to be found. And peace of mind turns out to be a significant factor in our physical health too.

Please be careful in the mountains.
FYI: There are a number of Bushfires in the Blue Mountains and surrounds.

There are a number of road closures and evacuations in place.

At least one property has been confirmed as lost. At least 7 fire fighters have been admitted to hospital for smoke inhalation or burns.

Smoke is headed east over Sydney's west, and towards the CBD.

Sorry, it seems our email and website are down. Please call the Centre directly if you're interested in making a booking: 02 4788 1407
