A warm WELCOME to the Huddersfield Serene Reflection (Soto Zen) Meditation Group Website.
We are a group within the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives, founded by Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett, who set up Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey in Northumberland and Shasta Abbey in the U.S.
We’d be very happy to have you visit the group and see if our type of meditation is right for you.
This website can introduce you to our form of meditation, what happens at our meetings, who we are connected with and how to reach us if you would like further information.
We meet each 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month at 2:30pm until 5:00pm at the Friends Meeting House in Wooldale, near Holmfirth.
Our meditation practice is “Serene Reflection Meditation” – the Soto Zen tradition of Buddhism where “Zazen” – or “just sitting” is emphasised – whether one has been meditating for a while or have only just started.
If you could ring us before you visit for the first time then we can be sure that one of the members who are trained to give you meditation instruction will be available to talk to you.
There is no charge for the meetings though donations are invited to support the cost of room hire.This website gives information about our meditation practice, what we do at group meetings, who we are connected with, and gives some local contacts should you want further information. You can download a group leaflet and follow up web links if you wish. You are welcome just to turn up.
