We are excited to announce that long-time student and meditation practitioner Wolfgang is running an 8-week course in Napier, New Zealand. Please read below for all the information you need. 


Calm Abiding Meditation (Samatha) allows us to release anxiety, stress and tension and increase happiness and well-being. Developed from traditional Buddhist mindfulness training techniques, this course teaches awareness of breath, posture and feelings to improve our physical and mental health and helps us to transform negative situations and our negative states of mind. The real value of Calm Abiding (mindfulness) Meditation is in its application to everyday life. This course also offers a speech blessing practice to change undesirable habits in our internal dialogues and communication.

"Meditation is a highly effective method of dealing with life's challenges."

These teachings are based on the teachings of Lama Choedak Rinpoche, a Tibetan Meditation Master, who has been teaching meditation and Buddhist methods for many years in the West. This course is suitable for anyone wishing to develop greater peace of mind.
