Dogen Sangha Yorkshire
Community Resource Centre
We meet on Thursday evenings at 7.00pm
The session starts with 30 minutes of sitting. We
then have a short ceremony followed by a talk and open discussion. Everyone
If you have not practiced Zazen before, please come at 6.45pm
for a short introduction to the practice.
We also meet on Friday mornings but please contact John for
further details of this
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. We ask people to
contribute £3 (£2 for unwaged/students) per visit towards the cost
of running the group.
Zazen is the simplest form of action, when we are practicing
Zazen we do not intentionally think about anything or concentrate on our feelings
and perceptions. We sit in a simple non-discriminating state where our body-and-mind
is balanced and undivided.
You will also find a detailed explanation of how to practice Zazen and kinhin
in the online electronic booklet (Adobe Acrobat pdf format) “Introduction
to Buddhism and the Practice of Zazen” that you can download by clicking
