Zen Brush​ 

In Zen Practice we learn to become one with the brush- one breath, one stroke, one circle.

Everything is encompassed within that one Enso… and then we let it go. As our meditation practice matures, people naturally become more creative, and the enso is a wonderful expression of this. Everything in that moment is transferred to the piece of art. It is a living piece. The way of the brush becomes metaphor for life.

Tea Culture

Tea and Zen have been connected for centuries, Tea is simple in taste and symbolizes the Human spirit. And so Tea and Zen have become inseparable, ChaZen Ichimi - Tea Zen as One.

 

 

A single swallow of tea, a single swallow of life.

BEING WITH THIS MIND

Zen is also known as the Mind School of Buddhism. Sakyamuni Buddha taught he was 'just a man, not a god', an ordinary person and he had found a way to overcome the difficulties of this life, through deep spiritual introspection and meditation as a way of daily life.

Zen is the continuation of this core approach to understanding ourselves as key to freedom.

THINGS TO DO

Zen practice is the core of Jizoan, zazen and regular one on one Koan interviews are the   focus: concentrated sitting

We have  Wednesday, Thursday evenings, Saturday or Sunday mornings and afternoon

 

As well as Monthly workshops, two 4 day intensives (Kosseshin) are held each year. Or get involved in some of the Arts, community projects etc,  at Jizoan.

Zen is about the truth of people. Living with each other we refine ourselves together, mutually we grow.

A Martial Arts group meets at Perth Zen Centre Jizoan training in traditional Japanese Martial arts of Iaijutsu and Aikijujutsu.

 

 

There is no enemy, there is no competition, no winning, no losing

Arts and Culture have been connected to Zen for thousands of years as Moving Zen.

 

Be inspired by the rich tradition of Zen Buddhism, to create ideas and become more engaged fully within and outside.

At the Zendo we are encouraging a rich community of artists and we also have traditional arts 

Tea and Zen have been connected for centuries, Tea is simple in taste and symbolizes the Human spirit. And so Tea and Zen have become inseparable, 'Cha Zen Ichimi' - Tea Zen as One.

One Breath, One Thought

Zen Saying

Get Started 
​There are many ways into Zen, not one size fits all.

 

Zen Buddhism is distinct for two things from other Buddhist schools in that it places all importance on meditation called Za-zen and Life coaching one-on-one meetings from a uniquely Zen perspective called San-Zen.

 

Some people might sit weekly with us once a week or many times a week, its up to you. There are currently 5 public sittings available a week.

Or you might come once a month to the weekend zazenkai/workshop.

 

Workshops are held at Perth Zen Centre Jizoan on a regular basis, covering many different facets of Zen, Lifestyle and practice helping you to understand and experience the full connection between Zen meditation and living and experiencing mindfully.

 

Twice a year a Special Zazenkai is held from 7am until 7pm giving a chance to immerse in all day zazen and Koan study.

 

Sesshin retreats are also part of Zen. The Ko-sesshin at Jizoan last 4 days and are held mid year June or July, and December.


 

 

To practice Zen is to let go of thoughts and judgments centering on our agendas. Opening our minds to life just as it is, beyond our thoughts about it, we can live fully and wholeheartedly.
