Introduction to Zen Meditation
The Wee Retreat
Saturday 11th March and Sunday 12th March
12:00 – 2:30pm
Everything you need to get started with practising Zen. Each day will feature informal talks, practical demonstrations and plenty of opportunities for questions and discussions.
Getting Started – looking at what meditation is and how it’s practised within the Zen tradition. We’ll have practical posture workshops to help you sit with ease and find rest in a balanced posture that suits you. We’ll also look at embarking upon a daily practice and tips for how you can get started practising at home.
This course is free of charge and will take place at The Wee Retreat,
2 Myrtle Park, Glasgow G42 8UQ.
Please email if you have any questions.
After the Introductions, you can start practising with us by taking part in any of our weekly sittings, both in-person and online, our Retreats and our activities, such as chanting and calligraphy.
To support you as a novice practitioner, there will then be the opportunity of a follow up course looking at continuing and deepening practice, and we will offer ongoing support and guidance.
You can view a series of introductory talks given by John Fraser, covering the origins, practice and rituals of Zen:
