Wellington Insight Meditation Community (Te Puaki Marama o te Poneke) is a community led group that offers an open space to support individual inquiry. We have an open sitting meditation practice on three Thursday evenings of the month at Wellington Study Group at 31 Hobson Crescent, Thorndon, 7 – 9pm with the opportunity to listen and engage with Buddhist teachings.
Parking is either on the street or next door in the Thorndon School carpark. Please be aware if there is a school function we will be required to use street parking.
Beginners are always welcome to attend these evenings. If you would appreciate guidance, please come at 6:30pm, introduce yourself to receive instructions. Thank you.
The usual format is a 45 minute silent sitting meditation practice followed by a live teacher or a recorded talk from one of the many teachers available, followed by an optional discussion. Cup of tea to finish.
The Buddhist tradition in which we locate ourselves comes from the Insight Meditation Society. IMS teachings are based mainly in Theravada Buddhism of South-East Asia, which mostly uses the original teachings of the Buddha found in the Pali sutras.
Dana, or heartfelt generosity, is the basis for each sitting and meditation retreat days offered.
