Learn Zen Meditation

IMG_4049Weekly Monday meetings. Our Zen meditation practice, called Zazen, centres and guides us in living an authentic, connected, aware life. Linked to Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey, the Group is affiliated to the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives, part of the Soto Zen tradition. You are warmly invited. The Group was founded in 1980.

Our introductory sessions, which include meditation instruction given by experienced practitioners of our lineage, are held on each second Mondays of each month.  There is no charge for these. The dates for forthcoming introductory sessions are, in 2019, May 13, June 10, July 8, August 12, September 9, October 14, November 11, December 9, and in 2020, January 13, February 10, March 9 and April 13. Click on the tab ‘My First Meeting’ above for further information.

You are most welcome to come to the group to see if our meditation practice resonates with you, and to try it out.

This 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 regular attenders to make a donation to support our costs through our alms bowl as they wish, according to their means.
