Beginners' instruction in zazen (Zen meditation) includes guidance in creating a stable and comfortable posture for seated meditation, and describes the Zen approach to working with the mind during zazen. Beginner instruction also includes an orientation to Zen practice and training opportunities in New Zealand. 

We end with a cup of tea and time for questions. 

More information about Zen practice at Lake Zendo can be found at Zen.org.nz.

Koha accepted to help defray the costs of the gathering.  More information about Zen practice can be found at http://www.zen.org.nz/


If you would like to host a group in your location Meditation Guides NZ is available to facilitate and guide that process.  All inquiries welcome. 


Learn more about meditation practice in your own home.  For whatever reason, some of us need to stay closer to home.  Tove can help you to find the right form and place in your own home to begin a regular practice.  Contact for information. 

Meditation guidance for individuals in a hospice setting is also available at no charge.
