Make space in your life to recognise the richness of your basic nature, to see the purity of your being and let its innate qualities of love, compassion and wisdom naturally emerge.” Mingyur Rinpoche

The Zendo reopens on Tuesday 7th January and we look forward to sharing practice with you in 2020. Regular practice enables one to integrate and maintain practice in everyday life.

We continue to have weekly meditation sessions on Tuesday evenings from 7.30-9 pm and the Study group remains on the last Tuesday of each month.

Upcoming days of Practice ( Zazenkais ) and retreats in 2020:
