Sheffield Zen group is affiliated to the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives, founded in the 1970s by internationally recognised Zen Master Roshi Jiyu Kennet
Affiliated groups, like the Sheffield group, are made up of ordinary men and women seeking to practise together and support each other in their training.
We meet for meditation every Thursday throughout the year, August excepted, and hold local one-day or weekend retreats three or four times a year. Newcomers are always welcome and meditation instruction is always available. No charge is made for these events; donations are always appreciated.
Reverend Lambert, from Throssel Hole Abbey, is the monk with special responsibility for supporting our group : leading retreats, giving talks and offering individual spiritual counselling in Sheffield.
