beginners_mind

Saturday, November 4, 1:30—4 pm

Join us for an afternoon in which we will introduce and explore the teachings of Zen Buddhism. During the afternoon, you will:

  • Find the sitting posture that will best support you to maintain a quiet steadiness during each period of meditation
  • Learn some simple techniques to help settle your mind while you’re sitting
  • Design a meditation space that will encourage your practice
  • Discover the path that can lead to an easing of anxiety and depression

We recommend that you wear loose comfortable clothing. The suggested donation is £10, but please just donate whatever you can afford to help us keep the lights on and the doors open.

Saturday Morning Precept Study Group

rakusu

“The meaning of the precepts is in living them”

Join us on Saturday mornings for a drop-in precept study group for all comers: those who have taken the precepts, those who are thinking about taking the precepts or already working on a rakusu, and anyone who is interested in exploring this set of instructions for living a skillful life.

Saturday morning zazen is from 9:30 am –10:30 am, and the precept group will meet from 10:30 am – noon, so you can come at 9:30 and enjoy two periods of meditation, or come at 10:30 and join us for precept study.

No charge; donations gratefully accepted.
