Meditation and Healing Retreats

Lama Tendar's background in healing goes back to his early days in Lhasa where he was fortunate enough to meet his first teacher, Gen Thupten Dhampa, a true Tibetan Healer who spent over 30 years in a cave cultivating wisdom and compassion and achieving realisations for the benefit of beings.


Lama Tendar and the Medicine Buddha Centre hold annual retreats where Lama Tendar dedicates himself to teach others how to live a positive life, cultivate a positive mind, and be confident in oneself.


Retreats are held both in Australia and overseas at different times of the year and include daily meditation, chanting,  deep relaxation and sound healing sessions and daily yoga. Retreats held overseas also accommodate time to have massages, swimming, sight seeing, exploring the colourful local markets and other local day excursions.

About Retreats
