The Adelaide Zen Group belongs to the lay tradition of the Diamond Sangha in Hawaii, and follows the form of practice originating there.

The Diamond Sangha, especially through the teaching of Aitken Roshi and his successors, places a strong emphasis on Zen practice in everyday life and highlights the important roles that relationships, work, families and all the ordinary conditions of life have to play in the practice (and vice versa).


Hutt St Zendo

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.

Please respect the silence and meditation space.

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.

We try to hold a number of Sesshin (Meditation Retreat) each year. These are fully residential retreats lasting for 3, 5 or 7 days. Non-members are also welcome to these events.
