Sub35 Meeting

When:  Wednesday, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Suggested Donation:  $15 (waged) / $10 (low income)

The Wellington Buddhist Centre Sub 35 is a group of young people aged 18-35 that comes together each week to explore a topic on Buddhism and everyday life.

Our group is aimed for young people and our unique experiences, be that dealing with difficult emotions, social media, new relationships, or addictive behaviours, we strive to hold a space for openness and manāki.

Upcoming topics include:

  • Mindfulness of the body
  • How meditation can improve our awareness of others
  • Authenticity and friendship
  • What is Buddhism?
  • How to deal with change and adversity

Our discussions are self-directed, but guided by experienced Buddhist practitioners, who provide food for thought such as specific teachings or practices to take home.

We end with a short, guided meditation which connects to the topic discussed.

Folks of all backgrounds, cultures, and traditions are welcome.

Current Topic: Wake Up!

Wednesdays, 30 January to 27 February, 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Come and join us for a four-part series exploring how the practice of meditation can allow us to break  out of our habitual reactive state of mind, and bring more awareness and clarity to our daily lives.

In the first two weeks we will be looking at how bringing awareness into the body can bring us a clearer state of mind.

This will be followed by a session on how practicing being mindful of others can improve our interpersonal relationships, as well as the relationship to ourselves.

In the final session, we will go one step deeper and look how meditation can allow us to see the reality of how things truly are. This will give our practice more enduring and far reaching benefits.

Ideal for those looking to make a fresh start this year and meet some new like-minded people within a supportive environment . Each session is stand alone and accessible to people of all levels of experience.
