All meetings are held at 9 Kotare Avenue Westmere, every Thursday.

The cost is by donation/dana per evening, to cover the cost of room hire, refreshments, teacher expenses, and organising future Insight Meditation events. A proportion of the dana collected throughout the year will go to Gil Fronsdal and the Insight Meditation Centre in Redwood City, California, in recognition of his generous teaching materials.

If the meeting is facilitated by a Visiting Teacher, there will also be an opportunity to offer dana to them on the night.

For more information on dana and becoming an Auckland Insight supporter, please visit our dana page.
