Yes, we ask that you sign up for a minimum of 3 months. However after the 3 months you are able to opt out at anytime.

The most basic membership option is a ‘Class Member’ which entitles you to attend all regular weekly drop-in classes and the online weekly class on Wednesday evening. As a ‘Centre Member’ in additional to weekly classes you can attend Friday night lectures, half-day and day courses free of change. ‘Centre Membership’ also entitles you to online access to all these events, except where these are not offered online at all (such as our offsite events).

Please see the table above for a break down of the various membership benefits. 

Our online classes are available only to members living in the Greater Wellington region. If you live outside this area, please contact your local Kadampa Centre as they likely also offer online classes.

After the 3 month minimum membership period, if you wish to opt out you can do so at anytime. Simply log in to your account under ‘My Account’, then select ‘Subscriptions’ and click Cancel.

There are no cancellation fees. The centre is a not for profit organisation, a registered charity. Everyone is a volunteer and so all our funds go back into the centre to support the provision of classes and events to everyone at an affordable cost.
