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.


Meditation Course

Mondays 20th July to 24 August

7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Meditation is a unique tool for changing your relationship with yourself and the world. In meditation you use your mind to work directly on itself, gently becoming aware of ingrained mind-habits and learning how to let them change, freeing you from patterns that have maybe kept you from really developing your potential.

Our six-week meditation courses provide instruction in two meditation practices: the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Metta Bhavana. They are taught by experienced practitioners, who teach in a friendly, relaxed way, communicating from their own experience, but based on a proven and trusted tradition.

Cost: $125 waged $105 unwaged
