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)
