Starting and nurturing a regular meditation practice

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

In plain English on the first Wednesday of each month, Beginners’ Mind is the evening for those who’ve never (or rarely) meditated, one you can comfortably bring your friends to.

We’ll start with a short meditation with a focus on the breath, and follow that with a meditation on loving kindness. We’ll then have a discussion about how things went for us, offer some hints and tips on creating a meditation habit, and answer any questions you may have.

So, whether you’ve never meditated before, or perhaps you tried but found it too hard, you’re most welcome to join us. You’ll find out you won’t be trying to ‘stop your thoughts,’ and that when you abandon goals you simply cannot do it wrong.

Doors open at 7:15, we start at 7:30 and our evening together ends with tea and biscuits.

Ramsey Margolis and Derek LeDayn will be guiding the evening’s activities.

 

THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A SILLY QUESTION

 

If you’re unsure whether this is for you, or have any questions we suggest you get in touch – use the Contact form, or phone or text Pete on 022 610 2910.

Bookings not required, just turn up. And while there’s never a fixed fee for One Mindful Breath events, we welcome contributions towards the cost of future events and donations for the teachings. More on this here.
