Open Way Zen Brisbane

Zen meditation meetings of the Open Way Zen Group are held at the Quaker Meeting House, 10 Hampson Street, in Kelvin Grove from 7:00pm to 9:00pm EVERY WEDNESDAY (see map below).


Visitors are welcome to attend. If you are new to the Zen style of meditation, a brief introduction can be provided before the meeting with prior arrangement. 

The root teacher of the Open Way Zen group is eminent Japanese Zen Master Hogen Yamahata, who spends a substantial part of the year in Byron Bay.

The meetings are conducted in silence, with a number of 35-40 minute sitting periods, separated by about 5 minutes of slow walking meditation. There is often a talk or reading as well. There is a fee of $5.00 to cover the cost of the venue.

The orientation brochure contains more on the Zen approach to meditation. Zen Mountain Monastery also has a useful introduction to zen meditation. Alternatively, please contact Peter Bruza in one of the following ways:
