New at Haywood Road Community Centre is Nottingham Chan Meditation Group.
Nottingham Chan is an affiliated group of the Western Chan Fellowship. We are a group of mixed experience, welcoming new members at any level. We meet on two Tuesday evenings in a month for sitting and walking meditation and discussion.
The key practice of the group is Chan – Chinese Zen Buddhism, as practiced by the Western Chan Fellowship. Foremost we are an open group, and there is no need to be a Buddhist. If you would like to meditate with us you are always welcome.
Meetings are held at the Haywood Road Community Centre on the first and the third Tuesday of each month, starting at 19:00 and finishing at 21:30.
The first Tuesday meeting in the month is also more specific to beginners or those new to a meditation practice. We begin meditation at 19:30, so please do arrive in good time, especially if it’s your first time at the group, to allow time for questions or specific practice demonstration.
If you have your own meditation mat, cushion or meditation bench, we recommended that you bring it, as our group equipment is currently limited. Chairs are available.
