The Adelaide Zen Group meets Zazen meetings every Sunday at 172 Hutt Street, Adelaide, (The Hatha Yoga Centre). Apart from zazen(seated meditation), the meetings can also include an encouragement talk or dokusan (one-to-one meeting) by our teacher.
Zazen meetings are not restricted to members only, although it helps us if you let us know in advance if you are a new participant planning to come along for the first time. Please telephone or e-mail beforehand.

The bowing and chanting ceremonies are not compulsory. If you do not wish to participate in them, we ask that you please retain seated silence during these times.
