Wellington Young Buddhists is a group of young people aged 18-35ish that comes together each week to explore a topic on Buddhism and everyday life. The evening takes place in two halves. In the first half, introduce an aspect of Buddhism with an opportunity for discussion. After a short tea break, we explore one of two Buddhist meditations.
Our group is aimed for young people and their unique experiences, be that dealing with difficult emotions, social media, new relationships, or addictive behaviours, we strive to hold a space for openness and manāki.
Our discussions are self-directed, but guided by experienced Buddhist practitioners, who provide food for thought such as specific teachings or practices to take home.
We end with a short, guided meditation which connects to the topic discussed. We will help you to set up in good posture and give a fully led practice, so there is no need for any previous experience.
Everyone of all backgrounds, cultures, and traditions is welcome.
Please arrive for a 7pm start.
