Activities

We offer regular formal and informal sittings. Dharma talks, teishos, and dokusan are offered frequently in conjunction with formal sittings. We also hold a number of ceremonies each year, to mark important days of the Buddhist calendar,

For newcomers, Introductory Workshops are held approximately every two months. We also offer meditation instruction at local Universities

For people with more experience in sitting, we offer regular short retreats in the city as well as longer sesshins (7-day country retreats). 

Dates, times and locations of all events are given in our calendar
Please call or  contact us by email before your first visit to the Zendo, so we can answer any questions you may have. Every week we send out an email update letting people know what is coming up, and several times a year we send a longer email newsletter. If you would like to receive the updates or newsletter please email info@aucklandzen.org.nz.

As well as these formal activities, we are involved in our local community in many ways. See our compassionate action page for more information.
