Cirencester Sitting Group
Weekly Zen practice group
Meets Thursday evening 8.00pm – 9.45pm
Also regular times of Zen training and retreats with the wider Sangha (see retreats and Zazenkai page)
We sit for an hour and a half each Thursday. Each sitting varies a little – first sitting of month chanting and precepts; second sitting of month dokusan (1:1 meeting with Sensei) is offered; third sitting of month chanting and precepts; fourth sitting of month Teisho (teaching). Each year we hold a Spring Ango and an Autumn Ango, roughly six week periods, in which we focus on study, understanding, and deepening our practice.
