Welcome to the Southern Lights Centre

The Southern Lights Centre is a very special place nestled amongst native bush on the outskirts of Akaroa, New Zealand, high on the mountainous rim of an extinct volcano whose crater forms Akaroa Harbour. It is a place of pure energy and at its heart is the Meditation Temple, the Silent Space. The natural surroundings and expansive nature of the vista offers an ideal environment to study and reflect inwardly with a sense of peace and heightened awareness.


The Centre is linked with a global network of schools that traditionally have been known as mystery schools. It encompasses the Ageless Wisdom teachings which at their core are a quest for understanding the purpose of the soul. These teachings are the accumulated wisdom from Humanity's quest for answers to the meaning of life.


We offer opportunities for spiritual nourishment, from meditations and retreats to our eight month residential course, Spiritual Realities. We are here to support you in rediscovering and developing your inner Self. We aim to prepare students and questers for a life of practical service, shifting towards a greater consideration of the needs of others and humanity as a whole.



Mission Statement


"To awaken human consciousness to spiritual dimensions and thus broaden the human perspective on world affairs"

The Temple

The temple is a unique space designed to marry heaven and earth, spirit and matter, the masculine

and the feminine. It is a space that stands free from any religion or philosophy and offers

any person(s) from any background a place where they can connect

with their essential nature, connect with each other

and find true meaning in their lives
