Speaker Profile:

Dr Eng Kong Tan
Dr. Eng-Kong Tan is a friend and supporter of our Buddhist Library since the establishment day. He has presented many talks on Buddhism, Psychotherapy, Meditation and Spirituality in this room under the auspices of many organisations. Many of us will know of him as a doctor, a psychiatrist and as a Buddhist Psychotherapist. He is Founder President of the Australian Association of Buddhist Counsellors and Psychotherapists (AABCAP). He is a former Chairman of Training of the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Association of Australia (PPAA). He established the Metta Clinic in Pymble, a group psychological practice, here in Sydney and he offers individual, couple and group therapies including a weekly mindfulness training group.


All Sessions by Dana (Donation).

Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The teachings flourish in an atmosphere of generosity and gratitude, and these qualities in turn support the growth of wisdom and compassion in the practitioner. The instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a specified fee and it is up to individuals to determine the amount of dana they would like to offer. It can sometimes be easy to become confused when we are new to this and we wonder “how much should I give?” This is a relevant question in the material economy but an appropriate dana cannot be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course (e.g., administrative & venue costs).
