York Chan (Zen) Buddhist Group
We are a Chan Buddhist Meditation group that meets near the centre of York. Chan Buddhism (Japanese: Zen) developed in China and has spread to the West in recent years.
We meet on Monday evenings at 7.30 - 10.00 pm and Thursday mornings at 7.00 - 8.00 am. Most sessions include two periods of meditation of 30 minutes each, liturgy practice based on the Heart Sutra, and walking meditation. You can use your own style of meditation or we can give you an introduction to Chan if you wish. After sitting there might be a talk, reading, or a recorded teaching followed by discussion.
We also hold silent weekend and one-day retreats in York.
The group is part of the Western Chan Fellowship which holds Chan retreats at a remote centre in mid-Wales.
