The Brighton Soto Zen Group has been offering zazen (seated meditation) in the heart of Brighton since 2003. Zazen is led by ordained members of the Association Zen Internationale, which was founded in France in the 1960's by Master Taisen Deshimaru, a disciple of Kodo Sawaki Roshi.
In IZAUK groups, when we practise zazen, we practise ‘Shikantaza’ or ‘just wholehearted, exact, sitting’. This is silent, seated, objectless meditation. We sit still and upright, offering our complete attention to each moment.
