About this event


		Meditation Instructions in Person image

If you like to learn Chan (Zen) meditation or meditation in general from the very beginning, you are most welcomed to join our instructions session. The best way to find out meditation is not only by reading books but also directly experience it. There are no entry requirements other than an open mind.

What to expect:

It's an interactive session and we will go through the following content:

  • Who we are and our tradition/lineage
  • What is Chan meditation
  • Correct sitting postures
  • Basic meditation method (e.g. breathing methods)
  • How and why meditation works
  • Full-body relaxation practice
  • Moving meditation practice
  • Sitting meditation practice
  • Q&A

The session is split into two parts. The first hour is mainly talking/theory-based, and the second hour is practice-based (we practice together) with some time in the end for Q&A.

We will endeavour to cover as many of the basics as possible in this two and half hours. However, it's impossible to cover every aspect of meditation. Please feel free to join the sessions a few times and also use our online sessions (https://online-chan-meditation.eventbrite.co.uk) to discuss your experience and difficulties.

Entry requirements:

For anyone aged 18 and over, please demonstrate one of the following at the entry:

  1. Evidence of a negative lateral flow test shown via text or email from the Government website, either taken at home or at a test centre, within 48 hours of the session.
  2. Evidence of double vaccination, where the second vaccine was administered at least 14 days before the session via the NHS App, vaccination card, or letter provided by NHS.

To report negative lateral flow test result: https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result

*Wearing a mask is not required during the session, as it prevents us from breathing naturally. But feel free to wear one if it's more comfortable for you.

What to bring and wear:

  • We suggest you bring your own meditation cushion or stool. For your own and others health and safety during the pandemic, we don't provide a shared meditation cushion. There are chairs in the room if you don't want to bring anything.
  • Bring one or two blankets to cover your knees or shoulders to keep warm, or to support your hands/arms during sitting.
  • Wear loose and comfortable clothes.
  • A bottle of water to keep hydrated.

Where is the venue:

The venue information is on the right side of this page and will be also provided under the "Additional Information" section in the Order Confirmation email. Please present a valid ticket at the entry. For everyone's health and safety during the pandemic, we have to limit the number of attendees. Thank you for your understanding.

Who are we:

  • We have more than 10 years of experience in running group meditation sessions, meditation retreats, public & corporate talks on mindfulness and meditation in the UK.
  • We are a branch under the Dharma Drum Mountain Buddhist Association (DDMBA). We share the Dharma Drum lineage’s teaching of Chan Buddhism and meditation.

If you like to give us some feedback or leave a comment please do not hesitate to drop us an email. We will get back to you as quickly as we can. Please bear in mind we are a volunteer-run organisation so response time may vary; we appreciate your patience and understanding.
