When both body and mind are at peace,
all things appear as they are;
perfect, complete, lacking nothing.
Zen Master Dogen (1200-1253)
Oxford Zen Centre, which has been holding zazenkais and sesshins online for the past year, resumed sitting in their zendo at 12 Mortimer Drive, Old Marston on Thursday September 9th, 2021
Currently, due to Covid, Zazenkais are (only) online via zoom from 5.45 to 7 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays – until the Trustees deem it safe to begin sitting physically together again.
Welcome to the Oxford Zen Centre. For those of you who have never practised Zen meditation before, it is a practice of focussing on the breath in silence to allow the mind and body to become still. Its many benefits include greater energy, clarity, peace, compassion and kindness.
We sit together every week in either location and on regular retreats in the UK and Abroad. You are very welcome if you want to join us in London or Oxford.
