First Thursday every month
The Garden Room
Great Meeting Chapel
Suggested donation £4/£5

Zen is the art of entering fully into the present moment, able to appreciate whatever arises as the beauty of our own life. The monthly session will teach simple Zen meditation based on the Chinese and Japanese tradition.

No experience is necessary, and people of any faith (or none!) are welcome- the practice will be taught free from any particular religious angle.
