On this non-residential retreat we will introduce our two main meditation practices, the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Metta Bhavana (loving kindness). Through these practices we can develop calmer, more concentrated and positive states of mind.
During this weekend we will practice in the supportive environment of the Auckland Buddhist Centre. You will be guided by an experienced meditation practitioner and teacher in the company of like-minded people. This will be suitable for both beginners or those who have attended our Buddhist meditation class and want to spend a weekend exploring these practices further.
Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. Buddhist meditation practices are techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energised states of mind. Such experiences can have a transformative effect and can lead to a new understanding of life.
