Christchurch: meditation nights



The Christchurch Diamond Way Buddhist centre has been on the Canterbury scene since 1991. We offer regular guided meditation evenings, Dharma talks and a monthly Introduction to Buddhism for newcomers.

Meditation Evenings

We hold public meditation evenings every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 8 pm

Newcomers are always welcome. You don't need to bring anything, and there's no cost.

The best night for your first visit is the first Thursday of the month, when there's a 30-minute introductory talk at 8 pm by an experienced member of the group, with time for questions, followed by a guided meditation. We're usually finished just after 9 pm.

On Tuesday nights, there is a 10-minute talk at 8 pm, followed by a guided meditation, which goes for about half an hour.

Price: Free, but donations are appreciated.
