Welcome to Wellington Buddhist Centre, the hub of a community of people interested in practising meditation and exploring the teachings of the Buddha. We are part of the world wide Triratna Buddhist Community.
If you are new to Buddhism or Meditation, and want to learn more Wellington Buddhist centre is an ideal place to begin your exploration of the richness of the Buddha’s teachings. We try to engage with the Buddha’s teachings in the conditions of the modern world, free from the cultural baggage of traditional forms of Buddhism.
We aim to practice and present a form of Buddhism that is grounded in the core teachings and practices that underlie all the different ethnic schools of Buddhism. This means that you will get an appreciation of the overall scope of Buddhist approaches rather than focus on one tradition.
The Buddha once said that spiritual friendship is the whole of the spiritual life and in Triratna friendship is one of our central ideals. So if you are already familiar with Buddhism Wellington Buddhist Centre can support you in your practice by helping you meet like minded people.

Meditation and Buddhism Course
Mondays 7 pm to 9 pm – 28 January to 4 March
Our six-week course provides instruction in Buddhist meditation including body awareness, mindfulness of the breath and cultivating kindness towards ourselves and others. Together these practices help develop relaxed awareness, clarity and compassion. This course will introduce the essential principles of Buddhist meditation and provide you with the tools needed to work effectively within your meditation practice.
As well as teaching you to meditate, each week we will introduce you to some basic principles that will help you understand what Buddhism is about.
There will be time to discuss your experience with others and to attend to any questions you might have along the way.
Everything is provided at the course to support your learning. All you need to do is come along in casual, comfortable clothes.
