In this four-week course, learn the basic views that are the foundation of Buddhist practice and discover how you can apply these to find meaning and fulfilment in your life.

Bodh Gaya Buddhist Centre offers Meditation & Buddhism Weekly classes at several locations in the Wellington region. These classes are an introduction to Buddhist teachings and meditations applied to our Western lives. Through these classes we can learn how to use Buddha’s advice as a solution to our daily problems. In this way we come to experience a sense of peace and happiness in our lives.

Each class includes a simple breathing meditation, a short talk and the opportunity to apply the teachings to your own life in a guided contemplative meditation. There is also time to ask questions and discuss over light refreshments.

Everyone is welcome to attend these classes regardless of previous experience of meditation or Buddhism. Different teaching will be presented each week. Start any week and booking is not required.
