formerly Sheffield Zen Society

Thursdays, 18:00 - 19:30, 19:30 - 21:00, or both, or drop-in between times.
Rm.3, Shirley House, 31 Psalter Lane, Sheffield, S11 8YL.

We are sorry to have to say, that all physical meetings are cancelled until further notice. We look forward to meeting you again after the coming Tier 3 restrictions. Zoom meetings will continue for regular members (newcomers please request attendance to Gensho by e-mail, see below). This a society for all people interested in Zen who want: true experiential contact with their own innate, awakened mind-spirit; or just the occasional dip into Zen’s vast sagacious wealth of clear, crisp far-sighted wisdom; to live a modern meaningful life within another path already established; or to map their own way forward. It doesn’t matter if you belong to another group, you would be welcome. We try to be open, inclusive, responsive and adaptable. The period is split into two sessions; 18:00 – 19:30 and 19:30 – 21:00. You can attend one, one or both of these sessions. Also realizing that people have tied-lives, we allow you to drop-in at your convenience, but please be mindful of others. There is no charge, but donations, towards room hire and tea etc., are gratefully received.

Please bring a zafu/cushion, zabutton/mat/blanket and dress in loose, warm comfortable clothing (subdued colours), if you can.

Parking: Please do not park in Shirley House the bays belong to the ‘Methodist Homes’. It is sometimes possible to park in the street bays (watch for conditions of use). You can use the Church car park, next door, with mindfulness of access for others.

Sheffield ZenSpace is facilitated by Zen-monk and Rinzai Zen-teacher Gensho (Richard Jones), junior Rinzai Zen-teacher Kaishin (Alison Churchill) and is affiliated to Oxford ZenSpace. Click here for further information on Events.
