Weekly Group Meditation

The Melbourne Zen Group meets twice weekly for zazen (sitting meditation).

If you are new to the Melbourne Zen Group, we recommend that you book in for a free orientation session as part of your visit.  These sessions are usually one-on-one, and are intended to help newcomers understand the shared ritual form that supports our group practice.

Zazen times

  • Tuesday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm (on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, the last half hour of the session is devoted to group Dharma discussion)
  • Saturday from 10am to 12pm (except last Saturday of the month)

As a courtesy to other sitters, please plan to arrive at the dojo approximately 15 minutes before zazen commences.


The group also meets twice monthly for longer meditation meetings known as zazenkai.

Our suggested donation towards venue costs is $5 ($3 concession) per session, or a weekly contribution of $6 ($4 concession) if you attend two or more sessions a week.


All group meditation is held at our Brunswick East dojo, unless otherwise stated.
