Intro to meditation and Buddhism

How can I avoid unnecessary suffering?

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 with a (relatively) new theme.

TONIGHT: learning to discern what we can change and working with pleasant/ unpleasant feelings in meditation

It's 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.

When

19 October 2020  7:00pm-9:15pm

Cost

$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 talk to a team member on the night if your current financial situation means the advertised cost is a barrier.

There is no need to book. Please come five minutes early for a prompt start at 7pm.
