Volunteering Event

Making the most of being human was the title of the weekend workshop Winton Higgins ran in Wellington in February 2013. Participants explored how Buddhist practice can be recast in a way that acknowledges the times and culture in which we live, and the choices and responsibilities that confront us now. Recordings and the texts of his talks can be found on the Secular Buddhism Aotearoa New Zealand website: http://secularbuddhism.org.nz/resources/retreats-conferences/winton-higgins-workshop/

Winton visited New Zealand again in late 2015 and he explored a contemporary approach to the teachings of Siddhattha Gotama, the man we now know as the Buddha. We sought support to cover his New Zealand expenses – international air fares, internal travel and accommodation – with the aim of making any teachings he offers for dana only.

A selection of his dharma talks and other writings can be found here:

If you would like to prepare for Winton’s next visit by throwing some dana into the kete with a donation please do so.

We have a dream – we would like to bring a steady stream of wise, experienced meditation teachers to Aotearoa New Zealand to offer teachings, inspiring some people to learn to meditate and others to deepen their practice of meditation. Can you relate to our dream?
