Our weekly online meetings offer a supportive environment where we can meditate together and learn about Zen meditation and Buddhist practice.
At our weekly online meetings, we meditate, say hello to each other, and each week reflect together on a different practical aspect of Zen practice / Buddhist teaching that we find helpful and supportive to explore. There is usually a short recitation of a Zen writing which encapsulates our practice, dedicated to the benefit of all beings. It is fine for newcomers just to listen.
We are keeping under review when we will resume our meetings face-to face, upstairs at the Friends Meeting House in Lancaster, next to the railway station.
Our attenders come from varied back-grounds including nursing, teaching, building, looking after family, researching, studying, therapy, business, and being retired.
Most months we have an online visit and a dharma contributiion by a senior monk from Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey, at our Monday meeting or at a Saturday half-day retreat. Our regular group monk is Rev Wilfrid Powell from Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey.
