Events – Broadcasts during Covid-19 period

We now run an extended dojo schedule ‘virtually’ led by monks, nuns and lay practitioners across the country. Further details on our broadcast site.

Join us for zazen & chanting while you sit in your own space – Tuesday, Thursday & Friday  mornings at 07:00, plus Wednesday evening at 18:00 and Sunday morning at 08:30. The wood sounds five minutes before the sit starts. Click the MIXLR    play button below when we’re ‘on-air’ **

Events at the Dojo – Suspended during Covid-19 period

The Dojo is closed but practice continues online.  Practitioners can continue to support the Dojo and the life of the Sangha by making a donation or becoming a regular supporter.

Normal schedule

When we’re able to visit the dojo, we sit together five times a week. We also usually hold a half-day sit on the first Sunday of each month, starting at 8.30. We also hold talks regularly.

Please see our Facebook page for information about upcoming ones.
