What we're about

Sober does not equal boring! No sireeee. Are you a teetotaller and are keen to meet others who like to have fun without booze in the mix? Or maybe you're doing a dry January, Feb Fast, Dry July, Ocsober or just some time off, and would just like to try something different (sans alcohol) for a bit?
Come join us at Untoxicated! This is a group whose focus isn't on not drinking. It's for people who refuse to be defined by their sobriety, who still like to get out amongst it and have fun but in the (relatively!) safe space of likeminded non-imbibers, and through a range of different activities. 
Think movies, dinners, bush walks, kayaking, brunches, visit galleries, live music, picnics ... and open to your suggestions!  Look forward to meeting you over a mocktail :) 
We also have a Facebook group for those who prefer to connect online: https://www.facebook.com/untoxicatedaus

Our web home with info on groups nationally and everything else Untoxicated is here: https://untoxicated.com.au/ ;
Please note: We charge a $5 booking fee to secure your place at events. We started out as a tiny meet up group and we are now a national charity operating various groups and growing, online support and across multiple platforms - the fee helps cover the meet up fees and other costs associated with running Untoxicated. We are still all volunteers who run it. All deposits are non-refundable. We sometimes take photos that we use on Meet Up and/or social media. Please let us know if you do not wish to be photographed.

Read the blurb here:
Are you new to Buddhism? Do you want to see what it’s all about or just use its teachings and meditation to improve your daily life?

Buddhism in a Nutshell is an FPMT introductory course that provides an overview of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and practice. It is suitable for people encountering Buddhism for the first time, as well as for people who have heard or read some Buddhist teachings but would like a more structured approach to understanding the path to enlightenment as taught by Shakyamuni Buddha.

It consists of four (or more) sessions that cover topics including the life of Shakyamuni Buddha, the four noble truths, and the three principal aspects of the path to enlightenment—renunciation, bodhicitta, and the view of the way things exist. The course also provides a brief presentation of meditation and five guided meditations suitable for beginners.
