Intensive Practice Period

Monday 10th to Saturday 15th July

Allan Marett will once again lead an Intensive Practice Week at the Sydney Zen Centre in Annandale and at his Guanyin Sangha Zendo in Ashfield. The intensive will conclude with a one day zazenkai at Annandale.

Both full-time and part-time participation is available. Part-timers are asked to sign up for specific
periods or blocks of zazen.

This retreat provides a wonderful opportunity to increase the intensity of your practice while still accommodating the demands of your everyday life.

Allan Marett was appointed an apprentice teacher in the Diamond Sangha in 2011. He has co-taught sesshin with Subhana Barzaghi, Paul Maloney and Maggie Gluek. He also offers dokusan at Annandale from time to time and gives dharma talks at zazenkai. He also hosts a regular early morning sitting group at his home in Ashfield. Allan began his formal Zen training under Yamada Koun Roshi in 1976. Shortly after the establishment of the SZC, he became a student of Robert Aitken. Subsequently he has studied with John Tarrant, Subhana Barzaghi and other Diamond Sangha teachers. He has a particular interest in pilgrimage and regularly walks the Henro pilgrimage in Shikoku, Japan. In 2007, Allan retired from the post of Professor of Musicology at the University of Sydney, where apart from a period as Professor of Music at the University of Hong Kong in the 1990s, he had taught since 1978. His areas of academic interest include Sino-Japanese music history, Australian Aboriginal music and Japanese Noh theatre.
