Providing an opportunity for experienced meditators to practice with others during both sessions. People starting to explore meditation are welcome to attend the second session where they will get the support of an experienced meditation teacher in a group context. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early since we try to start on time:
9am - for experienced meditators, no guidance provided
10am - suitable for those starting to explore a meditation practice
We are not currently offering an online Saturday meditation, but you can join the Wellington Buddhist Centre's 9am online sit here. The Zoom meeting ID is 936-232-193
If you are attending the 10am session and are unfamiliar with how to meditate, please let the person leading the meditation know so they can provide more guidance than usual. For first visits it is also recommended that people sit in a chair for comfort, although meditation cushions and benches are provided for use and you are welcome to try them.
These popular drop-in sessions usually rotate from week to week between two meditation practices: mindfulness of breathing and metta bhavana. The individual meditation sessions are about forty minutes long.
