Our meditation practice is Zazen, also known as serene reflection meditation. We are affiliated to the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives, part of the Soto Zen tradition of Buddhism. The Lancaster group has been meeting since in 1980, and has close links with Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey in Northumberland.
Our introductory sessions are on the second Mondays of each month. The dates for introductory sessions in 2019 are January 14, February 11, March 11, April 8, May 13, June 10, July 8, August 12, September 9, October 14, November 11, December 9.

You are warmly invited to come to the group to see if our meditation practice resonates with you.
Our website informs you about our meditation practice, what we do at group meetings, our connections and group contacts. We meet on Mondays at 7.30pm at the Friends Meeting House in Lancaster, which is right next door to Lancaster railway station – except for some Bank Holiday Mondays, and between Christmas and New Year..
There is no charge for our meetings – we invite attenders to make a donation to support our costs as they wish, through our alms bowl, according to their means.
