Can we talk about enlightenment?

This class is the place for newcomers to the Auckland Buddhist Centre to learn meditation and the basics of Buddhism.

This class happens every Monday night at 7pm.

TONIGHT: Can we talk about enlightenment?
What is enlightenment really? How can we get a glimpse or understanding of what is fundamentally a lived experience that is said to be "beyond concepts"? We'll examine important symbols that help us get a taste of the experience of the enlightened mind. We'll continue the practice of learning to dwell in the body, in direct experience in meditation, too.

These sessions are part of a rolling 10-week introductory programme. You can join on any night. Classes are designed as much as possible to stand alone for this purpose. But committing to all 10 nights over time will give you the thorough foundation you need to establish your own meditation practice, and step confidently into other classes and retreats.


19 April 2021  7:00pm-9:00pm


$20 for your first class
$180 if you choose to commit to all 10 classes

We strive to make Buddhism and meditation accessible to all. Please contact us if your current financial situation means the advertised cost is a barrier.

Please come five minutes early for a prompt start at 7pm.
