Event Details

All are welcome to participate in orientations to Zen Buddhist practice.

Come along on Thursdays from 7pm to 9pm once a month, to 251 Young Street, Annandale. Our orientations are a very relaxed way to start your Zen journey. There will be instructions about sitting and walking meditation, as well as some information about Zen philosophy and rituals. Please wear loose dark, preferably black, clothing. It is better not to wear tight fitting jeans or belts to ensure circulation of blood in your legs. When sitting with the group avoid wearing revealing or patterned clothing, perfume and noticeable jewellery, so there are no distractions from your meditation practice.

There is a cost of $20, which entitles you to the Newcomers Orientation evening, as well as attendance at the next Dharma Café on Monday or Wednesday evening in the next week . This is payable by cash only on the Orientation night. At the orientation, a senior Zen student will talk to you about our practice, rituals and philosophy and you’ll have a chance to try it for yourself. The Dharma Cafe is an opportunity to ask a teacher about practice in daily life or any questions that emerge for you after the orientation.

Orientations take place by appointment only, so if you wish to attend an orientation please email Kerry Stewart: Once you have booked please confirm by email a few days before the orientation.

We’re looking forward to meeting you …
