Zen Meditation and Mindfulness in Sheffield & Doncaster


South Yorkshire Zen Group is an affiliate of Dana Sangha in Paris. Currently we meet in Sheffield and Doncaster if you want to to come along please contact us or see our schedule for more details. Join our Facebook Page for regular updates of meetings in both Doncaster and Sheffield.


Beginners are welcome and full instruction is given.


At the group there is practice of Zen meditation (Zazen) and walking meditation with group and private discussion of practice led by Scott Williams.


Scott has been meditating for over 25 years and is a senior student and instructor with Dana Sangha, part of the White Plum Asanga, in the Soto Zen ligneage of Taizan Maezumi Roshi. He has trained under Catherine Genno Pagés Roshi since 1997 in both Shikantaza ('just sitting') and Koan Practice (questions that test Zen understanding). He is married with two children and works as a change management professional.
