This personal homepage was setup to allow convenience and service to anyone who is trying to contact or engage me in relation to the services that are offered.

It also gives me the opportunity to write news about the happenings in my day to day business life and to to offer comments in Blogs that I trust may be helpful and informative.

The associated information and links that these pages offer do, I believe, make the combined sites a rich resource for anyone looking for help or service with hypnotherapy or marriage celebrancy and counselling or indeed if you are looking for the right building designer.

Introduction to Buddhist Meditation (4 part series)

This is a 4 part workshop that presents an "Introdution to Buddhist Meditation". It is presented by Dennis Sheppard on behalf of the Buddhist Society of Western Australia (BSWA). The course was filmed over 4 weeks in September 2014 at the Buddhist Centre in Perth WA.         Click to go to Workshops »

Week 1: Looks at the basics and introduces "Ana Pana Sati" Meditation, with emphasis on Its dual role in practice, namely "Sumeta" (Tranquility & Concentration) and "Vipassana" (Insight).

Week 2:  Investigates why we find it difficult to make our minds peaceful and looks at the hinderences involved. We look at Techniques to bring balance and joy, to understand the power of stillness.

Week 3: Explores how to bring Meditation into our every day lives and looks at balance and Mindfullness.

Week 4: We bring it all together using the wisdom, balance and coherency that has been developed, to investigate ourselves and the world, to see and understand what the Buddha saw.
