Events – Broadcasts during Covid-19 period

We currently run a 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 evenings at 18:00 and Sunday mornings 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 not fully open yet, 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 open the Dojo fully, we sit 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. The contact page gives further details.

Please see our Facebook page for information about upcoming ones.

Bristol Zen Dojo is part of an international network of zen centres, the International Zen Association (AZI), which has strong links with the Japanese Soto Zen school.

International Zen Association (UK) holds sesshins (retreats) three times a year across the country. See the IZAUK page for details of upcoming sessions.
