Towards A Culture Of Love & Aroha
Wellington Heart is a gathering of a diverse group of people with a powerful intent to reconnect as ‘community’ to transform our systems with compassion and sustainability.

We are concerned about the future of humanity and the need to be part of the change that is required. Connecting with like-hearted and like-spirited people is seen as the way to build capacity for that to happen.

Wellington Heart will provide a forum for those who believe we need a compassionate, thriving, sustainable and spiritual approach with love-based and value-based politics, inspired by Max Harris, author of 'The New Zealand Project' in the creation of a fair and just society where as a group, we can learn, share, and empower each other.

It is hoped events, both mundane and spiritual, will connect people who feel alienated by “politics” with a lack of trust in our bureaucracies. Looking at new models presented by Max Harris in his book 'The New Zealand Project' and Oliver Hartwich’s passion for introducing 'Localism' into our local government system will give us concrete inspiration as potential application here in Wellington.

We will be open to anything that happens, for the greater good of all people, that supports and encourages love, peace, trust and connectedness to lift the energy of our city, our country and our global world.

Many of our current “care” systems have become complex, focus on power and control, are deficient in values and are affected by hypocrisy. We need to move away from that model so that when our people and our communities need care and compassion, the support networks are there for them at their most vulnerable times.

Wellington Heart is working towards a compassionate, thriving, sustainable and spiritual Wellington.

Curious About Death & Dying?
We ran the 1st ever Death Cafe in Wellington and the 1st ever Public Death Cafe in New Zealand. We gather once a month at Trinity Union Church, 11 Hall Avenue (off Hall Street) in Newtown, Wellington, to bring our community together and exchange conversations about Life & Death, to ponder, wonder and celebrate the Art of Living and Dying in compassionate community. Come on down and share your thoughts, anxieties, fears, stories, and enjoy conversing and mingling with like-spirited warm-hearted people. Let's take death gently out of the closet and make a friend, not a foe, of this inevitable companion to us all!

At Death Cafes, we also celebrate Life & Death with song: Bring your ukuleles, guitars, mandolins, flutes, tambourines, Irish drums etc to play, sing together and create our own community chorus and sing-along Ukulele song charts and chords are provided - the rest easily follow. Check Upcoming Meetups for details.

This is an inclusive space to share and connect with all free spirits, explorers of Life & Death, cultural creatives and members of the general public.

Unity In Diversity we welcome everyone regardless of race, gender, age, ethnicity, creed, sexual orientation, religion or no religion, inter-faith or diverse spirituality, socio-economic class, or any other humanade condition. Together we can create a regular sacred space where people meet and experience their connection to one another in the Spirit of Peace, Unity, Goodwill and Harmony amidst the Great Adventure of Life & Death.

Transmission Meditation - A World Service

Mt Vic Hub

FREE ENTRY. ALL WELCOME. Do you want to help the world and build a stronger connection with your own spiritual nature? Transmission Meditation is the simplest way to do both, at the same time. Transmission Meditation is both a world service (Karma yoga) and the most potent technique of personal development (Laya yoga) available today. This meditation is a virtual 'hot house' for the spiritual growth of those who participate on a consistent basis. It provides a vehicle for service affecting the entire evolution of humanity for the better. As people make contact with that higher aspect of themselves ― the Soul ― they begin to feel the need to be of service to others. This inclination to serve brings them into contact with people and circumstances where this Soul purpose can be put to practical use. Thousands of people around the world are joining together to aid in the work of transmitting these powerful spiritual energies for the benefit of humanity and the construction of a new world based on Unity, Sharing and Justice. Service is most potent when performed in group formation. As this relates to meditation, it is known that far greater energy can be handled by groups than by individuals meditating alone. Thus, Transmission Meditation offers a unique opportunity to serve humanity, working with others, right where you are. There are approx. 600 Transmission groups in 40 countries worldwide meeting on a regular basis. Their combined efforts since 1974, is creating a 'Network of Light' around the planet. You may join an existing group in your area, or form your own group by simply inviting a few interested friends to meet with you at least once a week. All you need is the intention to do so and the desire to serve. There is never any fee to participate. A group may begin with as few as three people. Once a routine is established it often becomes a special and important point of focus in each individual's life. Transmission Meditation is safe, scientific, non-denominational, and extremely potent. It will not interfere with any other religious or spiritual practice. In fact it will enhance your personal meditation and any other service activities in which you may be engaged. Many people find they can experience and demonstrate love more easily. Others report that their mind is more stimulated and creative. Some people receive healing, spontaneously, during the transmissions. FREE ENTRY. ALL WELCOME.

Wellington Heart: Toward A Culture Of Love & Compassion

Wellington Heart: Toward A Culture Of Love & Compassion❣ Tonight's Event: From Conflict to Connection Public Forum, Wednesday 28 November @ 7.00pm Mt Vic Hub, 24E Elizabeth St, Mt Victoria, Wellington, NZ (Opposite Clyde Quay School) 'From Conflict to Connection' Within every conflict lies the seed of transformation. Conflict is an inevitable part of life. 'From Conflict To Connection' is a means to create peace through our speech and communication. At a time when anger and violence dominate human attitudes, how do you show up in the world? Bringing about peaceful change begins with working on our own mindsets. What YOU say next will change YOUR world. Be a force for love in your surroundings. Transform conflict to deepen connection to yourself and others in all your relationships. Listen empathically to understand. While our usual habit is to listen from a place of judgement and evaluation, developing EMPATHY and SELF-Empathy skills bring us to a place of connection and harmony within ourselves and others. Come and join the dialogue and discussion. Learn how to speak the 'Language of the Heart'. Take the first step toward developing an awareness and consciousness of harmlessness for yourself and others - in your homes, schools, workplaces, and empathic social change within our communities. Wellington Heart is a gathering of a diverse group of people with a powerful intent to reconnect as ‘community’ to transform our systems with care, compassion and sustainability. We are concerned about the future of humanity and the need to be part of the change that is required. Connecting with like-hearted people is seen as the way to build capacity for that to happen. Wellington Heart will provide a public forum for those who believe we need a compassionate, thriving, sustainable and spiritual approach with love-based and values-based politics, economics, health and educational systems towards positive social change. The New Zealand Project: We will look at new models based on the values of Care, Community and Creativity inspired by Max Harris and his book ‘The New Zealand Project’, in the creation of a fair and just society, where as a group, we can learn, share, and empower each other through genuine care and aroha. Compassionate Nonviolent Communication (NVC): Language is fundamental to all our relationships and the quality of lasting social change. We will integrate into our ethos the Language of the Heart, better known as Compassionate or Nonviolent Communication (NVC), founded by the late Dr Marshall Rosenberg. Speaking peace is communicating without violence, and a way of connecting with others that allow our innate Compassion and natural Empathy to flourish. Many of our current “care” public systems have become complex, focus on power and control, are deficient in values and are affected by hypocrisy. We need to move away from that model so that when our people and our communities need care and compassion, the support networks are there for them at their most vulnerable times. Wellington Heart is working towards a compassionate, thriving, sustainable and spiritual Wellington. Our forums, working groups and conversations will be accessible and respectful to all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, religion, faith, creed, ethnicity, disability or any other humanade condition. Your voice is vital. Come and join us. Koha Entry. All Welcome. Koha/Donation gratefully accepted towards cost of venue and refreshments.
