One Mindful Breath is a secular dharma practice community in Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand. We run weekend retreats and weekly evening meditation sessions every Wednesday.
One Mindful Breath explores the role of meditation and mindfulness in embracing the difficulties of our modern lives, letting go of unhelpful reactivity, experiencing the calm and clarity of spaciousness, and cultivating creative engagement as a way of being in the world. Our practice is secular in orientation and framed by Buddhist ethical and philosophical values.
Whether you’ve never meditated or you tried but found it too hard, you’re welcome to come along!
‘Beginners’ Mind’ on the first Wednesday of the month offers a chance to experience a short meditation practice if you're new to meditation.
Come along if you:
• would like an introduction to a simple form of secular meditation practice.
• want to meet other meditators and practice with others.
• have never meditated, or tried it and found it too hard, or you already meditate and want a different experience.
• are interested in meditation, mindfulness, self-improvement or dharma practice
Put aside a half day or a day for secular mindfulness practice every three or so months at the Home of Compassion in Island Bay. These days typically include a mix of short sitting and walking meditation sessions and brief talks, with time for discussion.
We come together on a Wednesday evening to meditate, followed by thoughtful discussion and a cup of tea, at the Friends’ Centre on Moncrieff St, Mt Victoria. Doors open at 7.15pm, the meditation starts around 7.30pm, and the evening ends around 8.45pm. For Wednesday evening sessions you can just turn up.
