Christchurch: meditation nights



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


Meditation Evenings

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

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

Thursday is our main meditation night and this is the best night for your first visit. You will get a short explanation about Buddhism and the methods we use, followed by a guided meditation. As we also enjoy social contact, there is always time after to have a drink and ask any questions you may have and our bookshop offers a good range of recommended books that you can purchase. 

Additionally, each first Thursday of the month, there is a longer Introduction to Buddhism talk at 8 pm about different Diamond Way Buddhist topics by an experienced member of the group. Afterward, there is time for questions, followed by a guided meditation. We're usually finished just after 9 pm.

Price: Free, but donations are appreciated.
