When and Where
Zazen(seated meditation) begins at the times listed below.
Longer periods of meditation (called zazenkai) are held on the last Saturday of the month from 9am to 1pm. These sometimes include either a talk, or a discussion led by an experienced member of the group.
The group also sits from 7pm-10pm on the Friday closest to the full moon. Full moon sits include a brief ceremonial reflection on the Ten Grave Precepts, and a half hour period of free-form kinhin. See the Calendar for dates.
Donation: we recommend $5 per session ($3 concession) or $6 per week ($4 concession) if you are sitting more than once a week.
Tuesday evening zazen: 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
*On the first Tuesday of every month, zazen finishes at 8pm to allow time for Dharma Sharing.
Saturday morning zazen: 10am to 12pm.
Friday evening full moon zazen: 7pm-10pm (only on the Friday closest to the full moon. See Calendar for the dates).
CERES has a number of entrances. The closest entrance to the Learning Centre is located at the end of Lee Street. The Learning Centre is the second building to the right after you pass through the Lee Street gate.
Parking is usually available in Lee Street on Tuesday nights, however on Saturday mornings you are more likely to find parking in the CERES car park at the corner of Roberts and Stewart Streets (entry off Stewart Street).
