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 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.
Note: There will be no class on 27 April, ANZAC Day holiday, but there will be a led meditation for those who want to attend.
