Ordinary Mind Zen Melbourne offers a Zen Buddhist approach to cultivating mindful awareness and presence in the activities of daily life.

It is open to beginners and experienced practitioners and people of all traditions. The group is evolving a style of Zen Buddhism which is adapted to Western temperaments and ways of life, but maintains the rigour and discipline of its traditional roots.

Everyone is welcome to join us for our activities. We offer monthly meditation meetings, one day sitting (zazenkai) three times a year, and multi-day meditation intensives (sesshin) once a year.

Ordinary Mind Zen Melbourne is located in Kangaroo Ground, near Eltham and Warrandyte.

Before visiting, please contact us.

Geoff Dawson will be holding a four-day sesshin in Melbourne over the Cup weekend from the 31st October to the 3rd November. Please see Sesshin 2015 for further details and Register to attend.
