Original Nature Meditation Centre

Address:   Wellington Wellington
Tradition: Theravada
Affiliation: Insight Meditation
Find on:
Teacher: Stephen Archer  
Notes and Events:

Our vision is to promote the practice and realization of being fully awake to the truth of our experience.

We recognise that this radical awareness, while inherent and completely natural, demands a profound and disciplined inquiry to bring to fruition.

Sustaining this inquiry, encouraging suitable meditation practices and supporting the growth of a community of practitioners is the work of Original Nature.

Becoming fully present to our experience naturally evokes a response of reverence, compassion and joy. These qualities are the heart of our teaching and practice.

Original Nature Meditation Centre is founded on the ethical principles of the Buddha-dharma. Our work is dedicated to nurturing wisdom and peace in ourselves and others, and for the benefit of all beings.

We acknowledge with gratitude the lineage of our past and present teachers and we belong primarily to the Insight/Vipassana strand of the Buddhist tradition.
