Maitreya ishwara is a visionary author and spiritual teacher who has shared thousands of Satsangs around the world since 1998.

Maitreya has created a vibrant meditation community in New Zealand near the idyllic Marlborough Sounds; a magical place where you can discover the love and bliss that you really are; a place where the journey is the goal, and where your fellow travellers share your passion for love, truth and freedom.

Maitreya Meditation Centre enjoys a beautiful setting with pine and native forest, private swimming and twenty acres of verdant land in the tranquil Wakamarina Valley.

We offer the rare opportunity to dissolve in the heart of Beingness in a friendly and transformative atmosphere.

Beginners and seasoned seekers are equally welcome, and everyone can enjoy the nondual teaching and conscious, loving energy that is shared. The morning satsangs are in silence. In the evening satsang everyone is invited to ask Maitreya questions or to share experiences.

We offer a flexible program of varied meditations and activities to complement the morning and evening Satsangs, including Individual healing sessions and Reiki initiations.

Everyone is asked to join in community work for at least an hour a day. You can also enjoy swimming, reading, walking, sharing with fellow travellers, or exploring the idyllic Marlborough Sounds. And those wishing to experience a silent meditation retreat are fully supported.

In this atmosphere of enlightened energy, personal breakthroughs are common. Many guests extend their stay and live at the centre for several months. We invite you to visit us as a drop-in guest or as a long-stay resident, and look forward to sharing the journey home with you in Maitreya Meditation Centre.
