Living according to our values; what is important to us, brings vitality and meaning in our lives. This path is not always smooth and easy. This weekend workshop on mindfulness will highlight the skills needed to deal with difficult thoughts and feelings that show up on our life‟s journey, so they have less impact and influence on us. Thus we regain control of our lives in what we do and how we ACT. Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) is one of the new mindfulness-based approaches in psychology that enables us to get our lives moving in rich, full and meaningful ways. Featured recently in the Making Australia Happy program on the ABC, ACT has scientific evidence to support its benefits. Practices will include mindful moving; simple, yet, like all meditation practice not easy.
NeLi Martin is a qualified psychologist who integrates her psychology training and many years of mindfulness study and practice. Rachel Collis has been a consultant psychiatrist and presents seminars throughout Australia.

Chenrezig Institute is affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT). Teachings at the Centre are based on the tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa as taught to us by our founder Lama Thubten Yeshe and Spiritual Director Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Lama Tsongkhapa (1357–1419) was the founder of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, of which His Holiness the Dalai Lama is a prominent teacher.
