Masks are not required, but we recommend you wear one at this time

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

TONIGHT: Ritual, devotion and imagination
Believe it or not, everyone worships something. Maybe it's coffee, or productivity, or your computer. What do we worship in Buddhism? What is the role of ritual and devotion? What sparks our imagination, moves us emotionally and connects us to what is of central importance in our lives?

This class happens every Monday night at 7pm, even on public holidays. It's a rolling 11-week introductory programme. You can join on any Monday night. Classes are designed as much as possible to stand alone for this purpose. But committing to all 11 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.
