Event: Cardiff Zen Day 30th January 2016

Cardiff Zen Day is being held on Saturday 30th January 2016 from 09:30 AM at Gwaelod-y-Garth Village Hall, Cardiff, and costs £27.50 for the day.

Details of the event are below and you can book tickets for the event by visiting here.

Cardiff Zen Day

After an introduction to Zen practice, we shall spend a silent day in sitting meditation (zazen) interspersed with walking meditation (kinhin). In our meditation we will practice attentiveness to the breath which, together with the stillness of the body, helps to free the mind from its ordinary mental activities and offers an insight into the oneness of life. This insight reveals to us our own human potential and calls us to use this in the service of others. It brings us to the present moment, clarifying and supporting our readiness to meet the ever-changing circumstances of our daily life.

Zen is a gift for anyone, whatever their background, faith or tradition.

This Zen day will be facilitated by Mark Scholefield, a long-standing Zen practitioner under Roshi Robert Kennedy of the White Plum Zen lineage. He is based at the Ammerdown Centre, near Bath, where he runs regular Zen days and weekend retreats.

Mats and cushions will be provided.  You may also choose to sit on a chair.


Please bring your own lunch.

There is car parking in the school car park next to Gwaelod-y-Garth village hall. Taffs Well railway station is about 10 minutes walk. The Stagecoach 136 bus from Cardiff to Pentyrch will drop you at the bottom of Main Road (Gwaelod). Please contact James Stewart if you need directions or further information (james.stewart@phonecoop.coop).
