August Zazenkai with Subhana Barzaghi Roshi

6 & 7 August 2016
9am to 4:30pm both days
CERES, Brunswick East

We are fortunate to have Subhana Barzaghi Roshi and apprentice teacher Kirk Fisher join us for a zazenkai weekend. This is an opportunity to participate in deep, nourishing practice. The two days will include sitting meditation, walking meditation, a Dharma talk on Saturday, and dokusan (private interview with the Roshi) on both days. Sunday afternoon will include Open Inquiry (a teacher-led group inquiry into an aspect of practice.)

Bookings are essential and must be received by Sunday, 31 July.
