When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides, and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso - The New Meditation Handbook.

Our programmes are open to everyone - newcomers and experienced meditators, young, old, working, retired, individuals and families. We welcome people from all faiths and those who do not subscribe to any faith. You do not have to be a Buddhist to take part in our programme and to benefit from it. 

*Regular weekly classes are held in Palmerston North, Dannevirke, Levin and Whanganui; with short courses in Feilding over the year. We are planning two short courses of 4-6 weeks (once a week) in New Plymouth in the second half of the year.
