What we're about

Metta Centre is a non-profit organisation, pursuing charitable purposes that advance social welfare and peace within individuals, families, the community, and in the world. We are guided by the principles of Buddhism to do what is good, to avoid what is evil and to purify the mind. We are interested in holistic change for a better inner and outer world. We welcome you to be a part of this change.

The Metta Centre has three non-exclusive areas of service:

THE METTA WELLBEING CENTRE

Hosts classes and courses that promote physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. We welcome monastics and teachers who wish to share the Buddha’s teachings and the practice of meditation to use our Dharma hall.

THE METTA BUSINESS HUB

Provides a supportive environment for profesionals and business owners to work together for their ethical businesses or other social projects. For a reasonable rate, Metta Centre offers facilities in a modern setup and resources to practise the Noble Eightfold Path and to advance your business.

THE METTA COMMUNITY

Is made up of individuals like you who want to connect with other people, who want to do things that matter, and who want to offer whatever skills they may have for social projects to better the lives of people, animals, the environment and Buddhist communities.

Mindfulness Days

Metta Centre

Enjoy a day of mindfulness and caring for your mind and body with meditation and qigong. Parents with children and teenagers are invited to stay on for the Children’s Mindfulness class. These classes will include instructions for mindful living, guided meditation practices to restore your lost energy, and Healing Breath Qigong to help us maintain good health, live longer, prevent illness, heal naturally, and lighten up our spirit. These classes bring in a holistic wellbeing practice that incorporates mindfulness, meditation, slow flowing movements, deep rhythmic breathing, and developing a calm meditative state of mind. The Children’s Mindfulness classes are for children and their parents to discover ways to bring mindfulness and kindness into each other’s lives, their hearts, and into their home. In this way, we can find our way back to our true home. For parents with children aged 5 years and under, please ensure that at least one parent is to be present with their child or children. The sessions will be facilitated by Sister Emerald and Sister Steadiness, both trained in Plum Village under the guidance of Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh. Program: 2-3 pm: Children's Mindfulness 3-4pm: Meditation 4-5pm: Healing Breath Qigong
