Welcome

Ordinary Mind Zen Melbourne offers a Zen Buddhist approach to cultivating mindful awareness and presence in the activities of daily life.

It is open to beginners and experienced practitioners, and people of all traditions. The group is evolving a style of Zen Buddhism that is adapted to Western temperaments and ways of life, but maintains the rigour and discipline of its traditional roots.

Everyone is welcome to join us for our activities. We offer monthly meditation meetings, zazenkai (one-day sittings) three times a year, and sesshin (multi-day meditation intensives) once a year.

The monthly meditation meetings are suitable for anyone with little or no meditation experience. If you are coming for the first time, please contact us to arrange an introduction for newcomers.

Upcoming Calendar

Monthly Meditations & Zazenkai are held at Kangaroo Ground, near Eltham & Warrandyte. See Our Location for address.
