Dharma Chakra is a unique class where students take turns speaking on a Dharma topic for eight minutes. Students are currently working through Shantideva’s text “the Way of the Bodhisattva”, studying and preparing to speak on 4 verses each week. We have found this class to be a highly effective way to learn about the Dharma through listening and speaking from our unique viewpoints. Students are therefore encouraged to participate, though newcomers are welcome to observe.
HEZR offers his supreme wisdom to encapsulate the essence of the verses, approaching the topic from multiple angles and levels. He masterfully connects the threads of knowledge presented by students to deepen understanding and awareness. Packed with gems and pith instructions, his dynamic talks are a highly effective means of training our minds to develop the pure perception of Buddha mind.
HEZR guides a unique meditation experience to open our minds to the vast expanse of non-dual awareness. His acuity in understanding the Western mind and depth of awareness, along with decades/lifetimes of meditation practice and the wisdom stream of his lineage, all culminate in a profound meditation offering that is next to none.
It is our great fortune to be under HEZR's guidance and we welcome everyone to enjoy the benefits, dedicated to all sentient beings.

If you are a keen liturgist/ composer/ writer or freelance transcriber from anywhere in the world, we have a job for you. Please let us know by emailing email@example.com and we can send you the raw materials that need transcribing. Minor mistakes are acceptable. We can offer $100 AUD for each hour of recordings as a starting point.
HEZR's talks on Shantideva’s verses usually extend for an hour or more and students are invited to transcribe the talk. Also, we are compiling transcripts of his 45-minute meditations and students are asked to help with this. Transcripts can be typed, or hand-written and scanned.
