Weekend Intensive: Join Us In Person, 6-7 August

Our next weekend intensive will be held in-person at Semaphore on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 August.  The Intensive will be led by Robert Joyner, Roshi and Imelda Carson, Apprentice Teacher.

The Intensive runs Saturday and Sunday and is broken into morning and afternoon blocks from 9AM-1230PM and 1:30PM-5PM both days.

You can come for as many blocks as your weekend schedule allows, whether it’s one session or for the whole two days.

The cost is $10 per block or $40 for full-time attendance.  COVID precautions for this intensive include; a well ventilated room, numbers limited relative to the size of the venue and a RAT test will be required either before or on arrival. More details will be provided in acceptance letters. 

If you’ve been sitting with the group for a while and you’ve been curious about a retreat, the intensive is the perfect chance to dip your toe into the waters of practicing for longer periods. Please email us with any questions and for a link to the registration form: azg@azg.org.au

Listen to Zen Talks @ AZG

We are uploading audio talks from AZG teachers as a way of sharing Teisho and Dharma Talks with all of you and especially those of you who are not able to attend in-person events with AZG.

Our Talks Page includes several recordings of Allan Marett Roshi and a series of talks ranging from Allan’s work on the Book of Serenity and other talks on subjects including the Heart Sutra. We’re recording and uploading more and more talks by our teachers and we’re looking forward to building our online resources.
