Zazenkai is a full day of practice, which is held three times a year. It is a day of deepening practice by participating in more prolonged meditation. It is also a stepping stone towards gradually becoming involved in longer residential meditation intensives.

Zazenkai is held at Kangaroo Ground, near Eltham & Warrandyte. See Our Location for address, and Upcoming Calendar for dates.

Update on Schedule

As restrictions have now changed, Ordinary Mind Zen Melbourne will now be holding meditation meetings at Kangaroo Ground (with limited places available), and also continuing with online meetings. Please see Upcoming Calendar and Covid Guidelines for more information.
