Under the COVID-19 Alert Level 2 restrictions, Meditation Classes in Mt Eden will proceed with COVID-19 protocols in place. Takapuna and Titirangi meditation classes are postponed until we reach Alert Level 1.
In each class a different aspect of meditation and Buddhism is explained. The classes are self-contained so you can drop in any week. There is no need to book or bring anything. Classes begin with a simple guided breathing meditation followed by a teaching and a second guided meditation based on the topic. There is also an opportunity for discussion, followed by refreshments.
No meditation experience is necessary, classes are suitable for beginners and experienced meditators. Everyone is welcome.
Topics & Dates
Happiness and suffering are feelings – parts of our mind – and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. In this series we will gain a deep insight into our mind, and discover how an understanding of its nature and functions can be used practically in everyday experience to improve our lives. Learn how to recognise and abandon states of mind that harm us, replace them with peaceful and beneficial ones, and start to make happiness your immediate reality.
