The Melbourne Zen Centre runs regular zazen (seated meditation) meetings open to anyone who is interested. Whether you are new to zen or have had some prior experience, please feel free to come and sit. At MZC we follow a clear and simple form of practice without expounding ideas or beliefs.

Our main venue (Bull Water Zendo) is a dedicated space in the front room of a suburban house in East Malvern, SE of the Melbourne CBD. Meetings at Bull Water Zendo are hosted by Mushin (4th from left).

Please see below for a list of our activities and always check our calendar.┬áIf you click on a heading a more detailed description will appear plus the option to RSVP if you’d like to attend.

Here is a list of the meetings currently offered:

Monday Evening Zazen 7.30pm-9pm at Bull Water Zendo: weekly formal Zen practice comprising 2 Zazen periods, Kinhin, Heart Sutra and Tea (Dana $5).

Sunday Morning Zazen, usually on the first and third Sundays of the month. Time and location can vary so please check the calendar.

From time-to-time we hold a full day of intensive Zen practice. Once again, keep your eye on the calendar for date, time and location.
