Meeting for Zazen

Sitting meditation (zazen) at our dojo in South London

Zen is strongly associated with group practice. Having the opportunity to be with others on the same path and in a place dedicated to this work is tremendously beneficial.

We meet regularly at Yugagyo Dojo in Camberwell, London – as well as online.

We have a growing community of practitioners based outside of London and joining remotely. We make every effort to make sure what we offer is available equally in-person and online.

Zazen online

A group behaves just like a coal fire. A burning ember that is not fanned goes out all by itself. A big pile of embers becomes a blazing furnace. When there are many of us, each person must take it upon himself to not disturb the others, by virtue of which we obtain a unique atmosphere. It is precisely by this atmosphere that we recognize a dojo of the Buddha Way.Zen Master Sawaki Kodo
