When and where we meet

Bristol Chan Group has now moved venue, though this time we intend to stay put for a while!

From Thursday 10th January 2019 we will be meeting for meditation and discussion (not to mention tea!) at the:-

 Bristol Zen Dojo, 91-93 Gloucester Road, Bishopston, Bristol, BS7 8AT

(above Miss Millie's Kitchen, on the right as you come away from the city centre).

See Google Maps link below for our new venue location..........




Most meetings consist of two 30 minute periods of silent meditation, broken up by ten minutes or so of walking meditation (Kin Hin). They usually begin and end with a short spoken and chanted liturgy. At the end we have a period of discussion and sharing – and then come the tea and biscuits, usually accompanied by more discussion.

Bring your own cushion or meditation stool if you wish; we also provide cushions.

If you are interested in coming to one of our meetings it’s a good idea to ring one of our leaders beforehand, to discuss your own experience (if any) of meditation.
