Becoming more deeply embodied in our practice

"The human body, at peace with itself,
Is more precious than the rarest gem..."


This non-residential retreat is open to all those who have already learnt the two meditation practices regularly taught at the Auckland Buddhist Centre; the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Metta Bhavana (Loving Kindness practice); and who have begun establishing a meditation practice at home.

During this weekend we will be exploring, in gentle and creative ways, the experience of a deepening meditation practice via becoming more embodied and attuned to the breathing body.

This course will be run with your well-being in mind. We will limit numbers and follow any guidelines active under the government's Covid-19 alert level system.
