Darwin Zen Group offers meditation, nondual inquiry, support and community to all those interested in taking the insights of Buddhism into their lives. Dharma dialogue, sharing, individual spiritual inquiry, and koan introspection are also provided. The emphasis is on transformation through insight to find freedom, peace and joy in every moment.

Weekly drop in meditation groups, guided meditations, workshops and courses are offered integrating traditional Zen, neurophysiology, psychology and nondual inquiry. The meditation sessions include sitting and walking meditation. The meditation is usually followed by a non-dual Zen exploration into integrating spiritual life with all other aspects of life including relationships, work and our inner life. About once a month there is also chanting meditation in English, Pali and Sino-Japanese.

Darwin Zen Group follows the traditional Zen form of the International Diamond Sangha.
