Let’s foster connection

The essential message of Buddhism is that we are connected, not separate. And, particularly in these extraordinary times, our responsibility as practitioners is to seek to foster connection. 


Accordingly, we have now set up online Zazen meditation sessions twice a week, an online Chanting Group and online Study Group, with more activities planned.


If you would like to know more about our activities, and participate in some or all of them, even if you’re a complete newbie to meditation, we’d really love to hear from you. Just email your name and mobile number to glasgowzengroup@gmail.com, and we’ll be in touch.
