Two events coming up:

2. Another sesshin (residential Zen retreat) at Micklepage (in Nuthurst, near Horsham) in October (12th-16th 2022), called 'Practising Zen in difficult times' 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 Rebecca Duffy rebecca.l.duffy@gmail.com


 I have decided to pause my registration with BAMBA (the British Association of Mindfulness Based Approaches) as I am no longer running MBSR or MBCT courses, and have retired from Salomons, where I was co-running the Making Friends With Your Mind course.


THE HOVE ZEN & MINDFULNESS SANGHA is now renamed as BOUNDLESS HOVE ZEN SANGHA, and meets on Tuesdays, online (7.15-8.45pm).   The current schedule is Big Mind on the first Tuesdaydokusan (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
