City Cave Zen

zengroupglasgow

We are a small, independent, nondenominational Zen Buddhist sangha based in Glasgow, but practicing internationally, with members currently in Scotland, England, France, Italy, and various American states. Our practice is zazen, which means “sitting in meditation.” We think of our practice as “Zen for real life,” for people who don't have the leisure to go on lengthy retreats. Because of COVID-19, our meetings are currently online only, with the occasional outdoors meditation in Glasgow.

All are welcome at our weekly meetings. There is no financial charge to take part, though donations are gratefully accepted.

City Cave Zen has meetings online, using Jitsi Meet, an open source and ethical application (no tracking or mining of users’ data) that works across multiple platforms, and does not require you to have an account to use the service — just the app or a web link. It works better in the app than in a browser.

There is no financial charge to attend any of our meetings, though donations are gratefully accepted.

Current Schedule (Scottish time):

Sunday Sangha Meeting, 6pm

The meeting lasts an hour, and includes a short chanting service, 25 minutes of zazen (meditation), followed by a Dharma talk by Dogo, and a discussion. If you would like to join us, email us and we will send you the link, the password, and our liturgy. Please make sure your camera is on, as invisible lurkers will be removed from the meeting.

Just Sitting in Silence, Thursday, 6pm

No Dharma talk, no chanting, no conversation, just a half hour of zazen together, led by Dogo. Three rings of the inkin bell begin the meditation, and one ring ends it. No password is required. Here is the link.

Fallen Leaf Zen, Monday 6pm

No Dharma talk, no chanting, no conversation, just a half hour of zazen together, led by daishin. Three rings of the inkin bell begin the meditation, and one ring ends it. No password is required. Here is the link.
