The Nottingham Serene Reflection Meditation Group follows the practice of Zen Buddhism within the OBC, and meets weekly at one of two different venues in the Nottingham area - see below for details of venues. Meetings are from 7.30pm to 9.15pm.
Meetings usually comprise either two meditation periods followed by a discussion on Buddhist practice related to our every day lives, or one meditation period and a recorded Dharma talk. Rev. Aiden visits the group for one of the meetings each month.
The Nottingham group offers a regular time and place for formal meditation and teaching, often with people who have been following the practice for many years.
Meditation instruction is available by agreement with one of the group contacts.
Venues for meetings
The group meets in two different locations, one in the city centre, and one in Arnold, to the north of Nottingham. Hopefully at least one of them will be near to you:
The majority of the Monday group evenings are held at the Tiger Boe Centre, 7 Clarendon Street, NG1 5HS.
The other venue is the ‘Arnold Zendo’, which is in the house of one of the group members in Arnold. (The address of the Arnold Zendo is not published online; please come to one of the meetings at Tiger Boe first.)
Generally, the first Monday of each month will be at the Arnold Zendo, and the remainder at Tiger Boe. There are exceptions to this though, so please see the colour-coded calendar below for full details (click to enlarge). Meetings are from 7.30pm to 9.15pm.
Daytime meetings in Arnold
There will also be a daytime meeting at the Arnold Zendo on the third Friday of each month (fourth Friday in June), from 10.30am - 12pm.
Day retreats in 2018
We have had several very successful day retreats in Nottingham in the last few years, and we have scheduled two for 2018, on Saturday the 14th of April and Saturday the 22nd of September. Both of these will be at Tiger Boe, and are marked on the calendar above.
Everyone is welcome to these retreats, whether you are from Nottingham, Leicester, or anywhere else in the East Midlands or beyond.
