There’s a lot happening through the Adelaide Zen Group in the next couple of months. Here’s a roundup of ways you can join us and practice with us, both online and (hopefully soon) in person in the coming weeks:
Thursday 17th of February marks an online Full Moon ceremony with Allan Marett Roshi.
In the full moon ceremony, we’ll sit together and then have a group discussion, taking one of the precepts as our subject. This is a great way to both practice with the group and take a first look at other aspects of Buddhist practice, ways we can bring our practice with us off the cushion and into our lives every day.
The AZG Weekend Intensive (Online): this year, the Summer/Autumn Intensive will be held online for the first time, on Saturday the 5th – Sunday the 6th of March. This is two day of intensive practice between 9AM and 5PM Adelaide time. As well as an opportunity to take some extended time for practice, the intensive will be led by apprentice teachers Imelda Carson and Steve Wigg.
If you’ve been sitting with the group and would like to try a longer period of practice without committing to a full retreat of several days, an intensive is an ideal place to start. You can come for the full two days, one day, or blocks of half days.
And, while we’re sitting online this time around for COVID safety reasons, it’s also a chance for people who wouldn’t normally be able to be with us in person to join us from wherever you are.
If you’re on the AZG mailing list, check your recent emails – and fill in the online application form to reserve your space. If you’re not on the list, or have questions, please contact us to stay up to date on our events.
Please Stay in Touch
Again, if there’s anything you’d like to ask about, or if you’re just curious about joining us and finding out what Zen meditation is about, please contact us. We’d love to have you along to a session and we’ll arrange for an experienced member of the AZG to show you the basics of meditation.
