There are a number of communities and individuals who practise insight meditation, as well as people who teach it, in Aotearoa New Zealand.

This website lets you know who they are and where they can be found, as well as where you can find sitting groups, learn to meditate, and sign up for retreats.

Contact the community or person nearest to you to find out more.

A Thought for Today

One of the most wonderful things in teaching retreats is to see people begin to open to that understanding of selflessness. Itís tremendously liberating to begin to see that thereís nothing to protect and nothing to solve and that rather than necessarily working out our problems, we can stop identifying with them.
