Wellington Buddhist Centre is the hub of a friendly community of practising Buddhists, who meet up regularly to meditate and support each other. The Centre is run by members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, who teach and practise a non-sectarian style of Buddhism, suitable for people living in the contemporary Western world.

We run regular classes for newcomers to Buddhism and meditation, as well as a programme of other classes, events, retreats, festivals and study seminars for those with more experience.

Open Nights

Tuesdays 7 pm to 9.30 pm009a

Open Night with Wellington Buddhist Centre is a time when anybody can come along, no matter what level of experience you have. It is a great introduction to the Centre, as well as a chance to contact like-minded people.

The evening usually starts off with a period of meditation. Don’t worry if you haven’t meditated before, we will lead you through a basic form. If you want to stay on we have a tea break followed by a variety of activities including talks on Buddhism, discussion groups, meditation and rituals.

Suggested Donation: $10 to $15.


Wellington Buddhist Centre is located upstairs at 6-8 Broomhedge Street, Mount Cook, Wellington.  There is plenty of parking right outside the centre in the evenings and on weekends.  Contact us for more information.
