Led by John Gaynor

Wed 13 September

Cost £15 Concessions £10

Light refreshments provided

This evening we will explore the practice of meditation using insights from the work entitled 'Fukanzazengi' (Universal Recommendation of the Principles of Sitting Meditation) by Japanese Zen Master Dogen. Writing in 1227, Dogen declared his Chinese Master Tiantong was 'the only person since Tang Master Hyakujo who truly understood the significance of Sitting Meditation'. In particular, 'Sitting meditation is the Buddha Dharma, and Buddha Dharma is Sitting Meditation'.


John has been a Zen Teacher with the Oxford Zen Centre of the Sanbo Zen tradition for 15 years. He has led a 90 day silent meditation retreat, seven 28 day silent meditation retreats, and numerous 6 day silent meditation retreats.
