Monthly Sunday Retreats

The West London and Central London groups run a day retreat on the first Sunday of each month at Holdspace in Islington led by Toby Kando Morgan and Tom Ketsudo Brodie.

If you already have experience sitting zazen with another group you’re welcome to come to these retreats – please contact us in advance to reserve a place and be sent the full details. If you haven’t sat zazen before please come to one of our wednesday evening sits first, as no instruction in sitting zazen is given at the Sunday retreats.

The retreats run from 9.45am to 4pm and cost £20. There’s zazen, a reading and discussion and a quiet lunch. Mats are provided, but please bring your own cushion, food for lunch and a face mask. Our social distancing measures currently mean a limit of 12 people for these retreats.

Holdspace is in Risinghill Street, Islington, N1 9SY opposite the south end of Chapel Market. The hall is at the end of the street on the right and entry is through the black metal bar security gate on the right at the end of the street. Press the button marked Holdspace on the intercom panel to the left of the gate be let in. The nearest tubes are Islington and Kings Cross.
