Practice is this life, and realization is this life, and this life is revealed right here and now — Taizan Maezumi Roshi

Zen meditation groups

My partner and I facilitate regular Zen meditation groups in Hampstead, London NW3 in person (on the last Saturday of each month) and online (on the second Saturday of each month) We meet at 2pm and end at 5pm. At each meeting I give an informal talk on aspects of practice and Zen literature/philosophy, and give private interviews for those who request them. I am a Dharma Holder in the White Plum Asangha, an international Buddhist community founded by Taizan Maezumi Roshi. I am affiliated with Stonewater Zen Sangha, founded by Keizan Roshi. My Dharma name is Myōshin, which means ‘luminous heart’

In November 2024 I will facilitate a zen retreat in the Lake District, UK, under the auspices of Stonewater. The retreat is fully booked but if you want to be on the waiting list, please contact me.
