You are warmly invited to come to the group to see if our style of meditation practice is right for you. Please just turn up.

Click on the row of heading tabs to get further information. Dates of monthly Monday introductory sessions are shown on the ‘My First Meeting’ tab.


The website gives information about our meditation practice, what we do at group meetings, our connections and contacts. Download the group leaflet and follow up the weblinks if you wish.

We meet on Mondays at 7.30pm at the Friends Meeting House in Lancaster, which is next door to the railway station. If you come to an introductory session on the second Monday of the month (see ‘My First Meeting’) one of our experienced members will introduce you to our practice and give you meditation instruction. The dates for the forthcoming introductory sessions in 2015 are April 13th, May 11th, June 8th, July 13th, August 10th, September 14th, October 12th, November 9th and December 14th. There is no charge for our meetings, though all are invited to support our costs through donation.

Our meditation practice is called ‘Serene Reflection Meditation’ also known as ‘Zazen’. We are within the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives, part of the Soto Zen tradition of Buddhism, and have strong links with Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey in Northumberland.

We look forward to meeting you. The banner image is of a dewdrop on a lotus leaf.
