We started to sit zazen as a group in 2008. In a front room, sitting, sharing soup and teachings. The initial aim was to meet as a group to share practice. We realised the need for sangha to maintain and deepen practice. A few of the group had attended Zen retreats with different teachers. Some came from different traditions or no particular tradition. At this time we did not have visiting teachers. Over the years we have invited teachers and are very grateful for them continuing to visit us to share the Dharma.
