The Zen Group of Western Australia is a lay-Buddhist organisation founded in 1983 and affiliated with the Diamond Sangha. We meet on Tuesdays at St Paul's Anglican Church Hall in Beaconsfield. All are welcome to sit with us.


The Zen Group of Western Australia started in 1983 with a small group of people sitting in a private home in Mt. Claremont, Perth.


Zen, or Chan as it is called when referring to its history in China, is one branch of the great tree of Mahayana Buddhism.

Talks by teachers and Sangha-members are available to listen to online as podcasts.


Membership entitles you to reserved and discounted places for Sesshins and Zazenkais, as well as use of our library and a subscription to The Wobbly Pot. Membership  provides vital financial support for the group's activities.
