Each Monday and Wednesday evening at our city temple in Annandale the Sydney Zen Centre offers seated meditation, or Zazen as it is called in Zen Buddhism. A teacher is available most of these evenings to provide dokusan (a private interview with the teacher).
Subhana Barzaghi teaches on Monday nights, supported by Allan Marrett, and Gillian Coote teaches on Wednesday nights. There will be no sitting at our city zendo in Annandale on public holidays or when sesshins (retreats) are being held at our bush zendo, Kodoji.
If you are a newcomer and interested in attending our weekly meditation evenings, we ask that you undertake an orientation first. This provides simple instructions about sitting and walking meditation, as well as general information about Zen philosophy and rituals. Find out more about our orientation schedule here.
