Meditation in the soto zen tradition

About corkzen

We are a group of practitioners, who come together to practise zazen, seated meditation, a few times a week. Our aim is to provide an open, peaceful atmosphere to support zen practice in Cork.

Occasionally we organise full or half day zen days and sesshins (intensive retreats), with invited guest teachers. One of our regular visitors is Ingen Breen. Follow the link for his schedule.

All are welcome, but if you are new to zen meditation, we ask that you complete a short introduction. Please email corkzen@gmail.com to arrange.


Wednesday 7pm - Formal zen practice, 2 rounds of zazen with kinhin

Thursday 7pm - Informal sitting

Please arrive 10 minutes before start time for the evening meditations.

If you haven't any experience of sitting in a zen dojo, please contact us to arrange an introduction.
