The Nottingham Serene Reflection Meditation Group follows the practice of Zen Buddhism within the OBC, and meets on Monday evenings, either in person on Zoom - see below for details. Meetings are from 7pm to 9pm.

Members of the Nottingham Group sitting in meditation

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.

Day retreats

We had two very successful day retreats in Nottingham in 2022, and hope to schedule more for 2023.

Everyone is welcome to these retreats, whether you are from Nottingham, Leicester, or anywhere else in the East Midlands or beyond.
