Zen Practice in the heart of the Goldfields
Welcome to the home of Castlemaine Zen, a thriving Zen community in the heart of the Victorian Goldfields.
We offer weekly zazen (seated meditation), monthly zazenkai (day of Zen practice), dharma discussions, sutra chanting, dharma talks and special events. More than enough to satisfy all your dharma needs!
Our sangha (Zen community) is passionate about realising the dharma in the flow of everyday life. We place a strong emphasis on environmental action, social justice, community building and the arts.
You do not need to be a buddhist to join our activities, just someone who yearns for a settled, connected and earthy life.
