Old Street – Central London Zen Meditation Group
For the time of the Coronavirus lock down, the Old Street Group is meeting online on Wednesday evenings instead of Tuesdays.
Introductions (online) from 6.00 PM.
Zazen: 6.30 to 7.30 PM
Study group: 7.30 to 8.30 PM
The link to the Zoom meeting is the same as the one for the Caledonian Road Group:
You can join the session from a laptop or from your mobile phone. Your laptop will need a microphone and an internet connection. If you wish to participate in the video conferencing you will also need a webcam.
In the study group we will continue to read and discuss the Vimalakirti Sutra. I am using the translation by Burton Watson (1997, Columbia University Press) which is also available as an audio book (Dharma Audiobooks, available at Audible). There also is a free online translation, but it is somewhat different from the text I use. On my blog The Trace of the Moonbird you can find summaries of our previous discussions. The study group is also an opportunity for you to raise any questions that you might have about the practice and Buddhism.
This is all new to us as it is probably to you as well. We just try this format and then see how it goes. I hope to see/hear many of you next Tuesday!
Bunhill Fields Friends Meeting House (Quakers)
The meeting house is located within the off-street Quaker Gardens. It can be accessed via Banner Street or Bunhill Row/Chequer Street (opposite the much larger Bunhill Fields park).
