For ages 18-30.
There's no avoiding the fact that life isn't perfect. Things change, we can't completely rely on anything and there's so much uncertainty in life. But Buddhism gives us a way to live a meaningful and fulfilling life despite the inevitable difficulties and ever-changing circumstances that life throws up.
Wellington Young Buddhists are a group of young people (18-30) 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.
