Sundays, 6pm in Brisbane

Developing a meditation practice is so much easier with the support of a group. Every Sunday evening from 6pm – 8pm, join us as we explore the liberating insights and practices taught by the Buddha. Each week we host experienced contemporary meditation teachers, who give talks on various aspects of the practice.

Cost is by donation. The teachings are considered beyond a monetary value so instead the tradition of dana (generosity) is practiced. Those that wish to support the continuation of the group and the teacher’s offerings, can do so via donation boxes on the night.

We sit together at Haiku Arts and Yoga Studio which is located just under the ‘Wrapture’ restaurant on Russell St, a few doors down from West End post office. Head down the concrete ramp and open the sliding door.

Meditation Workshop for People in Recovery @ Haiku Arts and Yoga
Jul 28 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Meditation Workshop for People in Recovery @ Haiku Arts and Yoga | West End | Queensland | Australia

The Buddha taught that craving is a root cause of suffering, and that meditation is part of the path to freedom from the cycle of attachment and habitual behaviour. The 11th Step of Alcoholics Anonymous also points to the power of meditation in creating positive change in our lives. In this workshop, we’ll explore ways that mindfulness and compassion can support abstinence from habitual substances or behaviours that cause harm.

Open to people in any form of recovery and suitable for those who are new to meditation. There will be periods of guided meditation, group discussion, and community building.

Please message lulu with questions. Suggested donation $10 – $20.
