To open deeply, as genuine spiritual life requires,
we need tremendous courage and strength, a kind of warrior spirit.
— Jack Kornfield

We're here to support each other on the difficult path of awakening.

Our location and schedule

The Bluegum Sangha meets 7PM – 9PM at our venue in Sydney's lower North Shore, as listed on our schedule.

  • At 7PM the sangha opens. People settle in and take a seat for the night’s meditation.
  • At 7:15PM the meditation begins. The meditation is typically for 30 minutes, unguided and silent, unless indicated otherwise on our schedule.
  • At 7:45PM there are short announcements about upcoming dharma workshops and retreats, followed by a tea break.
  • At 8PM the scheduled talk or discussion begins. This is usually a dharma talk from a teacher or guest speaker, or a discussion in which you will have the opportunity to reflect on your practice.
  • Between 9:00PM and 9:15PM the evening ends with a 1 minute silent meditation.

The Cost

There is a $5 fee to help cover the venue costs, plus voluntary dana (generosity), which is offered to the night’s teacher.
