Free Parkland Sunday Meditations

Jogyata from Auckland Central

Interested in meditation? Whether a learner or seeking the company of a like-minded group to practice with, you’re warmly invited to our drop-in, free weekend park meetings. We’re currently offering meditation courses in our Auckland parklands on Sunday mornings at 10am. These share a range of different meditation skills and guided exercises and introduce the ABC’s in helping you with your own developing practice. A popular aspect is the use of simple mantras along with harmonium accompaniment.
If you’re keen on joining in, contact us (see below) and we’ll be in touch with times and venue details. Sunday’s next session, December 5th will be at the Auckland Domain, meeting at 10:00am by the band rotunda off Domain Drive. Bring a mat to sit on the grass, or a meditation stool. Weather permitting, our coming Sunday will offer a one hour session covering a wide canvas of exercises along with q & a opportunities and some refreshments afterwards. No charge, all welcome.

Numbers are limited with current Covid restrictions, (25) so signing up is required.
