Our Teachers

Sydney Zen Centre has three teachers, Subhana Barzaghi, Gillian Coote and Paul Maloney, who regularly help members with their practice, conduct ceremonies and lead sesshins. Subhana is at the Annandale dojo on Monday nights for zazen and dokusan. You will be able to sit and receive dokusan with Gillian Coote on Wednesday evenings and Paul Maloney mostly teaches with Sydney Zen Centre members who live in the Blue Mountains.

Maggie Gluek and Allan Marett are connected to the Sydney Zen Centre but have their own sanghas in Sydney. They are part of a collegiate of 5 teachers, which includes the SZC teachers. Maggie and Allan occasionally relieve Subhana and Gilly on Monday or Wednesday evenings, co-teach at sesshins and supervise some other programs on our calendar.
