Auckland Insight meditation group

Huia retreat group edited

Auckland Insight Meditation Group is a community of people in Auckland, New Zealand, who are interested in exploring meditation together in the Western insight meditation tradition.  This tradition combines insight meditation (vipassana), which is grounded in the practice of mindfulness, and the brahma vihara practices of kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity, to develop deeper happiness and peace of mind.
The group meets weekly on Thursday evenings for a meditation and talk/discussion, facilitated by its members and guest teachers and is open to everyone.
