Our City Zendo

Our city zendo is in what used to be an old corner shop that is located at 251 Young Street, Annandale, in Sydney’s inner-west. There is zazen (sitting meditation) and dokusan – interview with resident teachers Subhana Barzaghi and Gillian Coote – every Monday and Wednesday from 7 – 9pm.

Zazenkais are an opportunity to practice for a longer period of time and hear a Dharma talk. They are held on the third Sunday of each month from 8.30am to midday.

Orientations for newcomers with practice leaders are held on Thursdays once a month. Please go to the Newcomers page to book in.

Precept recitations and Full Moon ceremonies are held every other month and offer students an opportunity to reflect on the inter-connectedness of all beings and the moral and ethical dimensions which arise from this realisation. We also offer study groups, Buddha’s Birthday and Memorial ceremonies, talks, workshops and city-based non-residential sesshins (retreats). Every alternate month we hold a ‘Dharma Café’ which provides another opportunity for shared reflections on our practice in daily life.
