Meditation

On Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Tuesday mornings we offer seated meditation, or zazen as it is called in Zen Buddhism.

We offer zazen at the Annandale zendo every Monday and Wednesday from 7pm to 9pm.
Zoom zazen is offered Tuesday mornings, and Thursday evenings.

Covid safety measures for attendance at Annandale: Wearing a mask is optional in the dojo and at the teacher’s discretion when going to dokusan.

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 non-member and attend our sitting group at Annandale the fee is $10. If you are a non-member participating in our on-line meditation program, we request a facility fee of $5 (provided your income makes this affordable).  You can pay this directly into our bank account: BSB 062 182 Account number 1013 7103. Please tag the payment with your name and the letters “FF”.

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.
