Medicine for the Mind

According to Buddha all disease and suffering, mental and physical, are caused by our negative minds. Normally our negative minds can feel deeply ingrained, but through connecting to Medicine Buddha we can experience the pure nature of our mind, heal ourselves of these inner diseases, and be able to help others do the same. This empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation, during which we will receive the blessings of Medicine Buddha, the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy. We will also learn to engage in the profound tantric practice known as self-generation, through which we awaken our own potential to become an enlightened healing Buddha.

Future Connect 1906

The Leeuwin Youth Explorer voyages are the greatest tall ship adventure for youth. The week-long voyages depart and arrive predominantly from Fremantle Port however the ship travels to Shark Bay in the North and Albany in the South. Our voyages enable you to surround yourself with active new friends, develop skills for the workplace and to test your personal limits. A day on board We run a working ship, so during the voyage you will be part of a whole heap of hands-on activities, from: - Navigating the ship and taking the helm - Setting and furling the sails - Climbing the masts and working aloft - Standing watch while sailing through the night Weather conditions, watch roster and ship positioning affects the schedule so there is never a dull moment. During the last full day of the voyage it’s over to you. Together, you’ll nominate a ship’s crew from within your teams – who has shown leadership, team management and capability? It could be you. Test your knowledge and skills and work together to chart the ship’s course to a new anchorage. Who is it for? Youth Explorer Voyages are designed for young people aged from 14 to 25. Older participants with a sense of adventure can also apply, but for you we recommend the Open Adventurer voyage. Previous sailing experience is not required, but an enthusiasm to try something new and a willingness to have an adventure you’ll remember forever are essential! Where do we go? The Captain will head out of the harbour and pick the best direction for sailing due to wind and weather conditions. Your parents can track the ships position at and follow along at home.
