National headquarters

The Brahma Kumaris National Headquarters at Five Dock, Sydney coordinates activities across in Australia, acting as the communications hub, both internally and externally. This is the home to the Board of Directors and the
Chief Executive.

In keeping with the growing demand for our community service programs after more than 25 years in Ashfield, the BKs recently relocated to the former Inner West Courier office space in Five Dock.

The community in Australia has also played a prominent role in opening BK centres across the Asia-Pacific region and continues to support growth in the region. For this reason, the Regional Office based in Five Dock, acts as a communications hub and also provides spiritual sustenance through senior teachers, who regularly visit countries in the region.

Other centres

Sanctuaries of Peace

These spaces offer an oasis of peace where you can leave the world outside and retreat for a while into safe, peaceful surroundings to feel the rhythm of your inner being, the soul.

Daily programs are available for regular students and the centre is usually open to the public each evening from
7–7:30 pm for meditation. Each centre arranges its own programs and meditation courses in response to local community needs. Please contact your local centre for more information on its opening hours.

Some dedicated longtime BK students offer courses and workshops in community rooms or their own home. These teachers are experienced long-term meditation practitioners and regular students, who have expanded the geographical reach for BK activities.

Retreat centres

For anyone wanting to bring about transformation in their life, one of the most supportive and renewing
decisions you can make is to participate in a spiritual retreat.

Brahma Kumaris Australia is fortunate enough to be the custodian of three beautiful retreat and study
venues.

Each facility is managed by dedicated volunteer yogis, who share their life experiences and wisdom in
retreat sessions. Daily meditation routines contribute to the learning atmosphere, and we appreciate
your support for this subtle focus on being positive and reflective during your stay. Our culture of
meditation creates a pure atmosphere that enables you to experience inner peace and a profound
connection with your own being and the Source of all understanding.

You will find that nature does her work too, offering a stress-free environment. All meals are
wholesome vegetarian choices cooked with love, and the entire grounds are also smoking-free zones.

Our Inspiration

You can call it meditation if you like. You can call it coming home to yourself. You can call it being present or resting in the certainty of your own being­ness. You could also just call it remembering.

Whatever name makes you feel most comfortable and inspired, the basic idea is the same. Brahma Kumaris has spent more than 75 years, in over 100 countries, experimenting with and developing what we call Soul Consciousness. We understand it as an intrinsically natural state of the self, which when re­awakened, allows each of us to align with and nourish our most inner being. The results? More confidence, lightness, depth, joy, capacity for open heartedness and love, together with the ability to live from my own truth.

‘Raja Yoga’ is the basis of all courses and retreats offered by Brahma Kumaris. The fundamentals are about returning to the natural state of self­rule, where each one feels secure and full.

All activities are freely gifted to the community. As a charity, we welcome voluntary contributions to assist with the running of our centres.

Regional Coordinator, Asia Pacific

Dr Nirmala gained an appreciation of BK meditation while operating a women’s medical clinic in Mumbai. After opening and running a Centre for the organization in India, she was asked to oversee activities in Australia. She has since returned to India and is also the Director of the Academy for a Better World, Mt. Abu.

We are inspired by the certainty that each one can make a difference to our future and to our 'now'
