All are welcome to participate in our orientations which are a very relaxed way to start your Zen journey.
Come along on Tuesdays once a month from 7pm to 8.30pm to 251 Young Street, Annandale (see schedule below). There will be instructions about sitting and walking meditation, as well as some information about Zen philosophy and rituals. Please wear loose dark, preferably black, clothing. It is better not to wear tight fitting jeans or belts to ensure circulation of blood in your legs. When sitting with the group avoid wearing revealing or patterned clothing, perfume and noticeable jewellery, so there are no distractions from your meditation practice.
Orientations take place by appointment only, so if you wish to attend you will need to email the person whose name is down for your preferred night (below). Once you have booked please confirm by email a few days before the orientation. You can join our regular meditation sessions at Annandale, or via Zoom (after orientation) on Monday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings.
When booking in please send your certification of double vaccination status and please bring a mask.
There is a $20 fee which covers the orientation and another evening of meditation with the sangha. This sum can be paid directly to our bank account: BSB 062 182 Account number: 1013 7103. Please tag with your name, and the word “Orientation”.
We’re looking forward to meeting you …
