Meditation: two enlightening evenings, Mt Eden - international guest speaker

Durba from Avondale

Don’t miss these two evenings! Popular teacher Dr. Harashita Sunaoshi from Kyoto, Japan is here in on her first NZ visit to share with you her knowledge, her own love of meditation and her decades of personal experience in this structured 2-part course.

Her Auckland visit offers a most special opportunity to learn from an inspirational speaker, one who has taught meditation globally for over a decade. Dr Harashita learnt meditation from the late Indian spiritual master Sri Chinmoy, and her free courses combine a wealth of practical exercises with many personal insights and experiences.

A avid marathoner, lecturer, longtime meditation practitioner and traveller, she has the gift of making meditation accessible and simple, while highlighting the deeper understanding that through meditation we are responding to a deeper, spiritual awakening in our lives.
Admission is free throughout.

Where: Fickling Convention Centre, 546 Mt Albert Road, Mt Eden
