Welcome to Lifelong Wellness, Inc.



Lama Namdrol Rinpoche:

The Importance and Power of the Funeral Relics of Shakyanmuni Buddha


Location: Unitarian Universalist Church, 10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501


As a prelude to the visit of the Maitreya Loving Kindness Tour beginning October 16 at the Utica Unitarian Universalist Church, Lifelong Wellness Inc. is excited to announce that Lama Namdrol Rinpoche will be our guest speaker this month.  He will give teachings on the importance and power of the funeral relics of Shakyanmuni Buddha and other enlightened masters. Born in Singapore in 1974 to a Chinese Taoist family, Lama Namdrol Rinpoche is a “tulku”, the recognized reincarnation of a Buddhist master from Tibet.  Drawn to Buddhism at an early age, Lama Namdrol studied with teachers from the Thervada, Chinese Mahayana and Tibetan traditions.  For many years he trained not as a monk, but as a lay Tibetan Buddhist yogi at Kopan Monastery in Nepal, before founding his own temple, Thekchen Choling Singapore in 2001 and Thekchen Choling Syracuse in 2014.  A brilliant teacher fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese, Lama Namdrol is well known for his fresh, lively, down-to-earth style, as well as his practical wisdom and insightful humor.

To simplify our planning this week for the Tour and the Speaker, there will be no dinner this month.  The lecture begins at 7pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm.


  1. Annual Membership:  $20  for Individual -  $30 for Family

  2. Speaker Only this month:  $5 for all

  3. Coffee, Tea and Light Deserts served

    No reservations needed for this month.

Movie Night Date 7PM, In 1990, Conversations with God.  A man named Neale Donald Walsch experienced a car accident resulting in a broken neck, which propelled him into a downward spiral of job loss, poverty, and homelessness. Eventually, he began to ask existential questions that many people ask, "What is the meaning of life? Why am I here?"
In 1995, he heard a voice asking, "Have you had enough yet? Are you ready now?"  God had come calling to answer those questions--and many more. This question and answer format served as the basis for the Conversations with God series, as well as the books What God Wants and Home with God. Conversations with God the movie dramatizes events leading up to those mystical dictations, flashing back to Neale's struggles with finding a job--and even finding food in alleyway dumpsters.
Admission to the movie is free, donations to the church welcomed.

Reiki is a Japanese word for universal-life-force. Sessions direct energy into the body and presence of a person to promote healing of the body and spirit. It helps to liberate the Heart, brings clarity of the mind, and calmly energizes the whole being. Receiving Reiki is like being a sponge in a pool of vitality, and love. We have so many local practitioners, we invite you to join us in a Reiki Share so others may learn the benefit of this healing practice.
