Zen Open Circle Events
The important thing that we do in each other’s company is discover more profoundly who we really are…And of course by that very fact we open up the same possibility for those whose company we share. We are here to learn to shine our spirit. Like every sentient being, we are star stuff – so why not live up to that?Roshi Susan Murphy
An Australian Zen Community
The Zen Open Circle began 15 years ago as a group meeting on a Sydney Verandah. Since then ZOC has grown into a diverse community with members across Australia.
Zen Open Circle invites you to join us at one of our upcoming events.
“The teisho of the actual body is the harbour and weir, where human eyes gather… This is the most important thing in the world.” Dogen
Zen Open Circle acknowledges the traditional owners of country throughout Australia, their diversity, histories and knowledge and their continuing connections to land and community. We pay our respects to all Australian Indigenous peoples and their cultures, and to elders of past, present and future generations.
