Retreats

IMPORTANT NOTICE – Due to current government public health advice to stop non-essential contact with other people we’re sorry to say we’re suspending our Wednesday evening sits and monthly day retreats for the time being. They’ll resume just as soon as government advice changes and to be notified of this please subscribe to our news email if you haven’t already.

In the mean time Tom and Matt can be contacted by email or our contact form. We hope everyone keeps safe and well till our next sit.

We normally hold day retreats the first sunday of each month at Holdspace in Islington

The retreats run from 9.45am to 4pm and cost £20. There’s zazen, kinhin, sometimes a talk by Mike Luetchford and discussion and a quiet lunch. Mats are provided, but please bring your own cushion and food for lunch.

Some sitting experience is desirable, so if you are new to us please come along to wednesday evening zazen at the Lumen church first.

Holdspace is in Risinghill Street, Islington N1 9SY opposite the south end of Chapel Market. The hall is on the right at the end of the street behind a black metal gate and has an entry phone next to the gate where you should buzz to be let in. The buzzer is often faulty however, so if there’s no response please ring the phone number shown beneath the entry phone and we’ll let you in. The nearest tubes are Islington and Kings Cross.
