Regular Meditation Drop-in Classes


Current Series: Taking Suffering and Giving Happiness
December 10
Want to conclude this challenging year in a meaningful way? Enter into the magical meditative practices of taking suffering and giving happiness, and grow your potential to be of profound benefit to everyone around you

Future Series: Inner Peace in a Changing World
February 18, 25, March 4, 11, 18

In recent times, we’ve seen how fragile and uncertain the world is, and how little control we have. We’re also seeing a fundamental truth of Buddha’s teachings: that the only thing we can control is our inner environment – our mental environment – our response to the ever-changing circumstances of our life. In this course, learn simple meditations and techniques to develop lasting inner peace. It’s a skill and a superpower that will protect you throughout your life.

Teacher

The meditation classes in Tauranga function as a branch of the main Centre in Auckland. The regular teacher in Tauranga is Mathew Stewart. Join the classes to learn from those who have already realised the benefits of meditation in their lives.

Our weekly drop-in classes are suitable for all levels of experience. Each class includes two guided meditations, a talk on a practical aspect of Buddhism or meditation (see topics below), and time for questions. There is no need to attend every class, just drop-in when you have the time. Everybody welcome.


Please note: you can drop into any class you want. Each class is self-contained, suitable for beginners and for those with experience.

‘When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within.’Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (from the book The New Meditation Handbook)
 

Meditation

Is a way of calming the mind, making us more peaceful, balanced and focused in our daily lives. Ultimately, it enables us to awaken our spiritual potential and find lasting joy and contentment.

Buddhism

Is a path of individual transformation. It teaches us to look within ourselves for the inner peace and happiness we seek. By developing a more positive outlook, and in particular by deepening our wisdom and compassion, we can improve the quality of our life and gain great power to help others.
