Leeds Zen Group meets three times a week at Woodhouse Community Centre to practice zazen. This is silent, seated, objectless meditation. We sit still and upright, offering our complete attention to each moment.
Leeds Zen Group is affiliated to IZAUK, formed by Jean Shogen Baby and Nancy Nanshin Amphoux, a monk and a nun who were disciples of Master Taisen Deshimaru, the Soto Zen Master who founded the International Zen Association (AZI) in France.
The International Zen Association UK (IZAUK) was founded in 1986 to support the zen dojos which follow Master Deshimaru’s teaching in the UK and it continues to support the individual Friends of IZAUK through their local dojos.
