Daniel shares his experience as a community-based social visits volunteer and prison chaplain. And shows us how regular social visits improve quality of life and help support people to feel less isolated.
He will share with us how to support with an open heart and a listening ear, focusing on strategies and skills we need to develop for listening and caregiving. When reaching out to vulnerable people, we can make a positive impact and integrate the Dharma in everyday life.
Daniel Troyak is Australia’s first full-time Buddhist chaplain. Having trained in Clinical Pastoral Education, he has spent many years sharing the Dharma in Australia’s most infamous maximum security prison, Long Bay Correctional Centre.
His passion for community care and volunteering led him to compassionate activities that support aged and vulnerable people, helping to lessen the pain of loneliness in these communities as well. As a student of Avikrita Rinpoche, Daniel has also attended Marici programs in Seattle, Nepal and online. It’s with Rinpoche’s heartfelt wish to see the Dharma in action that has planted the seed of Marici in Australia.
