I am no longer taking new private clients - my NHS and North Kent Mind work keeps me busy enough. But if you have seen me before and want a top-up I'm sure I can squeeze you in.
Events coming up:
1. Another sesshin (residential Zen retreat) at Micklepage (in Nuthurst, near Horsham) in May (24th-28th 2023), called 'Letting Zen Flow Through You' which will include lots of zazen (zen meditation), kinhin (walking meditation), teishos (Dharma talks) and dokusan (1:1 interviews with the teacher), but also a big mind and a chi gong session each day. For more details or to book, contact Ine van Dooren firstname.lastname@example.org
2. A mindfulness course is planned for after Easter 2023 - eight sessions based on the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) format. Get in touch if interested via this website (contact form).
THE HOVE ZEN & MINDFULNESS SANGHA is now renamed as BOUNDLESS HOVE ZEN SANGHA, and meets on Tuesdays, in person or online (7.15-8.45pm). The current schedule is Big Mind on the first Tuesday, dokusan (individual interviews) on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, and teishos (Dharma talks) on the third Tuesday of the month.
We are part of the Wild Goose Zen Sangha (www.wildgoosesangha.org) which is part of the White Plum Asanga, the lineage from Taizan Maezumi Roshi.
Chi Gong is in Stoneham park if fine... 9.30-10.30 on Friday mornings, donations
