Kindness, decency & wisdom

  • Wellington Friends’ Centre 7 Moncrieff Street Mt Victoria, Wellington New Zealand (map)

Anna Markey will be Zooming in from Adelaide to talk with us about kindness, wisdom and decency, and how the open approach to meditation she teaches is validated by the development of these qualities in us.

Formerly a primary school teacher, Anna Markey was introduced to Buddhist practice in 1983 in India, where she took teachings from a variety of Tibetan teachers and attended retreats with insight teacher, Christopher Titmuss. She has had some experience and is very interested in working with children in the dharma and meditation.

She still practises insight meditation, and she has also practised with a zen group in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh and in the Burmese Mahasi method. From 2007, Anna studied with Jason Siff, and now she uses an open awareness approach in her retreats and regular groups. She likes using this gentle, transformative approach as it helps us change our relationship to both our inner world and our outer world.

Anna teaches regular at Coast and City Sangha in Adelaide.
