Take a Break for “Just Sitting”










Lunchtime ZAZEN@RMIT University

Every Tuesday 12.30pm-1.30pm, RMIT Spiritual Centre (Building 11, Level 1), RMIT City Campus

Just Sitting (Japanese: “Shikantaza” 只管打坐) is the core practice in Zen.The approach to it is very simple and straightforward. You sit with an upright posture while being aware of your experience. There is no aim for any 'special' states or experiences.

Sounds simple? Zen meditation is as simple as it can get, and there is no point in burdening it with ideas and expectations. It involves no complicated methodology, but simply developing a regular habit of Just Sitting.

Come and sit with Zen monk Seikan and others, followed by a short talk about Zen practice and an opportunity for Q&A.

Chairs are at the venue, or you can bring your own zafu (meditation cushion) or stool.

To access the venue directly, use the courtyard stairs.
