The Heart Sutra.

This much loved Buddhist teaching is a reminder of the nature of things, a stand-alone sutra of immense beauty and a doorway into the transcendental.

In this talk, Caitlin will give a very light introduction to the Heart Sutra, and use that as a basis for a discussion of emptiness as an inherently compassionate, connecting teaching.
This will open up the space for the group to explore how this teaching is still relevant in today’s world.

Wellington Young Buddhists are a group of young people (18-35) that meet on a Wednesday evening to explore a topic on ‘Buddhism and everyday life’. Our group is aimed at young people and our unique experiences; be that dealing with difficult emotions, social media, new relationships, or addictive behaviours. We strive to hold a space for openness and manaaki.

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.

Folks of all backgrounds, cultures, and traditions are welcome.
Suggested koha/dana $5/$10/$15.

The Wellington Buddhist Centre gives people the tools to work with their minds. Now more than ever, we all need resilience, awareness and positivity. Teachers give their time freely and many volunteers help keep the Centre running.

Support the WBC with your generosity by giving what you can.
