We meet regularly for zazen (sitting meditation) at Rokpa House (Kagyu Samye Dzong) on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.


We sometimes have longer zazen events listed on our Events and Sitting Updates Page, as well as updates on sittings during holiday periods.


If you are interested in sitting with us, simply come to Rokpa House 15 minutes before any regular zazen time. If you would like to arrange a fuller introduction to sitting, please come on a Tuesday at 18:30, or to one of our Introductory half days, or if you have any questions regarding sitting with us or joining the group, please This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

On Tuesdays at 18.30 (in the Basement room), we have some additional informal time together before our sit at 7pm in the Garden Room, where we will be available if anyone would like some guidance with posture, prepare for sitting, or chat about the practice with a cuppa from the kitchen.


Tuesday 18:45  (18:30 for posture / about the practice)

Event and sittings update

We have been advised by Kagyu Samye Dzong (KSD) that the Centre is closed to group activity, apologies but there will therefore be no zazen at the centre until further notice. Also our Introductory Half Days and Chanting Group (detailed below) will not meet at KSD in the meantime. As soon as we have any further news about events and how we can maintain connection in our group we will let you know. We wish you to be well and safe.
