First Visit

Please come along on to any of the Wednesday session for your first visit - arrive at 7.00 (or soon thereafter). We'll introduce ourselves to each other, then have a chat to give an intro to Zen practice generally, and to our particular way of doing things as well. You don't need to have any experience at all - though people with experience of other forms or lineages of practice are of course entirely welcome too.

The third Wednesday of a month is perhaps the easiest day from our point of view. If there's enough demand, we will run a formal intro session over about an hour, after which we join the rest for the second period of the regular meditation schedule.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me (or call 07807 753 781).

There are some basic meditation instructions at the main StoneWater Zen Sangha website ( - we'll discuss these as well as other aspects of Zen practice.
