We are a group of friends who have been coming together weekly since the start of 2012. We meet on Wednesdays from 7:15 to 9pm at Newtown Community Centre, Rintoul Street, offering a friendly place to learn to meditate.
Our approach to mindfulness is a secular one, relevant to life today in Aotearoa New Zealand. In an environment that fosters stillness, silence and attentiveness, a session includes silent sitting followed by discussion, and the evening may end with a short guided meditation.
Our meditation practice is a simple one: we sit silently, in stillness, on chairs rather than on cushions on the floor, aware of what’s happening at that moment. That’s it.
People with all levels of experience are welcome, including beginners as very basic meditation instructions may be offered. If it’s your first try, let us know so we can help you feel comfortable.
We also organise afternoons of meditation and discussion through the year that we call Simply Secular Saturdays, and will be offering weekend workshops facilitated by Australian teacher Winton Higgins on October 24 & 25, 2015 and US teacher Jason Siff on November 28 & 29, 2015.
Whether you want to learn mindfulness, find a friendly group to meditate with, or deepen your practice, just turn up. A contribution for the following week’s room hire is welcome.
Each week a simple newsletter is sent out by email. If you want to get onto the mailing list add your email address to the mailing list on the right. Click here to take a look at the newsletter archive.
