Caledonian Road – North Zen London Dojo

Sadly, due to the current viral crisis, and the very real need for social distancing, the dojo is now closed

– however –

we are beginning a digital zazen schedule via ZOOM Beginning Monday morning 23rd march at 06:50am!

Log into Zoom HERE: (Meeting ID: 344 964 756) beginning Monday morning – 06:50 (initially from one of our living rooms),

then, after Wednesday (if all goes to plan), LIVE STREAMED FROM THE DOJO !

The schedule for this will change as we work out the best way to practice together digitally – but stay tuned here, on the website, or join our mailing list to keep up to date with changes!

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
