Caledonian Road – North London Zen Dojo/Group
Caledonian Road – North Zen London Dojo
The North London, Caledonian Road Zen Dojo is a small, friendly group of people who meet in this dedicated space to practice traditional Soto Zen (Zazen) Meditation. We have been established in North London for over 25 years, 5 of them at the Caledonian Road Location (previously we were in Highbury). Join us every day for zazen – we are a 5 minute walk from the Caledonian Road underground station. Interested in the mindfulness meditation thing? It’s not that new. 🙂 Just sit, pay attention, and be still and upright in the midst of what arises.
Beginners welcome! We have twice weekly introductions (20 minutes long) – on Thursday evenings at 7pm and Saturday evenings at 5pm – each followed by our normal meeting period – there’s no need to book – but we do start promptly at the times listed, so best come a wee bit early.
We sit every day at Cally Road
- M/T/W/F mornings at 7am,
- Thurs evenings at 7:30pm (intros at 7pm)
- Sat evenings at 5:30pm (intros at 5pm)
- and Sun mornings at 9am

You will see a pharmacy right by the bus stop. Our door is on the right side of the Pharmacy, it is exactly on the other side of the bus stop . Buzz the intercom that says “ZEN”, it’s up top. Our door is at the end of the corridor on the right.
