Introductions to Zen Meditation

In Summer 2020 we have Introductions to Zen Meditation on Saturdays from 12pm noon to 1.30pm on the following dates, held on the online meeting platform Zoom:

8 August 2020

During this present emergency, inner steadfastness and outward connection with all beings is more vital than ever. Zen Meditation is the expression of both.

The Glasgow Zen Group have recently moved their activities online for the duration of this period, and have been particularly keen to let others know about the practice of Zen meditation (zazen).

The Introduction will consist of an informal talk about the practice and principles of meditation, a discussion about what is distinctive about Zazen compared to other forms of meditation, a demonstration of how to meditate, and an opportunity for you to meditate with feedback and discussion afterwards. The event is free. What we suggest afterwards is that you come along to a couple of sits, then arrange a Zoom one to one call with John Fraser, our teacher, to address queries, uncertainties and so forth.

Please come and join us – to do this contact us by email for the Zoom details, or for any questions about these events. The introductions are suitable for those new to zen, as well as existing group members. They are also very useful for existing practitioners who are looking for a congenial group to practice with, and would like to get a broad sense of what we are like.
