About Jalü

Jalü Centre for Buddhist Practice is  a non-sectarian, online Buddhist centre and network of meditation groups. We offer three distinct streams of practice, training and support:

  • a secular program of Calm Abiding and Insight meditation instruction for people of all faiths or no faith;
  • a non-sectarian Buddhist program focused on sharing the universal core of the Buddha’s teachings, specifically teachings on meditation, compassion and the true nature of mind.
  • Support for those with chronic illness and mental health issues wanting to learn about meditation or Buddhism.

We are open to all Buddhist traditions but are specifically inspired by the Dzogchen tradition from Tibet, the Chan tradition (or Chinese Zen) and the early sutras that expound the Buddha's original methods to achieve liberation. We welcome people from all backgrounds, whether beginners or advanced practitioners, and value diversity in all its forms. At Jalü we focus on the essential Buddhist practices that lead to direct experience of one's true nature rather than on complex visualisations or mantra recitation. We offer an opportunity to understand and directly experience that true nature through simple meditation and mindfulness practice. We are non-sectarian in our approach however we draw heavily from the wealth of teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. Jalü Centre for Buddhist Practice is committed to delivering these teachings in a way that is accessible, authentic and understandable for all people in this complicated, modern world in which we live. We are a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to relieving emotional and psychological suffering for all, both Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike, especially those who are marginalised or oppressed. We aim to do this by providing training in meditation, mindfulness, compassion, ethics and other Buddhist practices that promote well-being and a more ethical and holistic approach to everyday life. Jalü encourages and supports spiritual autonomy, curiosity, and creative and critical thinking. We consider personal ingenuity to be an integral part of each individual's spiritual practice. Our core mission is to provide a simple and clear path to profound wisdom and compassion applicable to people of all cultures.
