Ordinary Mind Zen Brisbane

"The Way is perfect, like vast space, where nothing is lacking and nothing in excess." - Sengcan

Welcome to Ordinary Mind Zen Brisbane (OMZB), an inclusive community of Zen practitioners dedicated to integrating mindfulness, compassion, and insight in our lives. We meet in Bardon, in the inner west of Brisbane.

We pay our respects to the Jagera and Turrbal peoples, on whose ancient lands we meet, and to their elders and ancestors throughout time.

Through regular group practice and teachings, we offer a supportive environment for individuals on the Zen path.

In our practice, we balance formal Zen training, centered on the cultivation of silent sitting practice (zazen), with active practice in everyday life.

Join us at Ordinary Mind Zen Brisbane, where you’ll find a welcoming community of practitioners committed to the transformative power of Zen practice in daily life.


Ordinary Mind Zen Brisbane Inc is an Association incorporated in Queensland and a religious charity registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC). We are dedicated to serving the community through our activities.
