Description
The SGI movement in New Zealand began in the late 1960s through the efforts of a sole immigrant pioneer from Hiroshima, Japan—Mrs. Yuki Johnston. Her tireless work at planting the seeds of Nichiren Buddhism in New Zealand resulted in the formation of the first district around 26 January 1975 with only seven members.

SGINZ was registered as a charitable trust on 18 November 1994. Today, there are more than 1,500 SGI members practising all over the country, with activity centres in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. Ref:http://www.sginz.org/

    Unique Opportunity to attend Dan Browns "The Pointing Out Style of Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, Level 1" in Sydney,  14-21 April 2013

    For additional information on Dan Brown, the Pointing Out Style Course Descriptions, and worldwide schedule see:

      http://www.pointingoutway.org/

    The pointing-out style is an ancient method of teaching meditation, grounded in the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism and the dynamic relationship between student and teacher. Structured methodology leads the meditator through increasing levels of concentration and insight, to profound “crossing over” instructions, the very gateway to awakening. With roots in Mahamudra and Dzogchen lineages, this 7-day retreat with Dan Brown has been created to give participants both the understanding and the skills required to practice and master these precious teachings. 

    For more information and to register for the Sydney Level 1 Retreat, go to:

    What: Level 1 Pointing Out Way Retreat 

    Where: Chevalier Center, 1 Roma Ave, Kensington NSW 2033 Australia

    Mindfulness Meditation

    We offer non sectarian day long retreats. Also we offer Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), an 8 week meditation course which introduces people to the basics of mindfulness practice and includes daily homework and a one day retreat. Three decades of research have highlighted the positive effects of the MBSR program from improving genral health and chronic illness.

    Teachers Jean Byrne and Rob Schutze are long term meditation practitioners. Their study of Buddhsim began with Theravadan practcie and later they began to sit Zazen (Kwan Um School and Diamond Sangha). Jean has a PhD in Eastern philosophy and has lectured in Buddhism at the University of Queensland and Bond University.
