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 weekly (currently online) introductions (~20 minutes long)  – on Thursday evenings at 7pm –  followed by our normal meeting period (ending at 8:50pm) – there’s no need to book – but we do start promptly at the times listed, so best come a wee bit early.

We sit nearly every day at Cally Road (except Saturdays)
