2 week course covering everything you need to get started practising Zen

About this event

Each week 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. In the first week 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.

Turning In, Facing Out – Introducing some of the traditions and rituals of Zen and how they might help us to practice together with the space, with each other and with the wider world. We’ll go on to have a look at Kinhin and the practice of walking meditation.

Bringing it Together – In the final week, we will sit a full period of Zazen and Kinhin as practised at any of our weekly sittings, retreats and practice days. To finish up we’ll discuss how we can bring together all the elements covered in the course and how they might help us to establish a regular practice.
