Kent Group

The Kent group holds regular weekly meetings on Saturday afternoons between 2:00pm and 4:00pm at their new zendo in Hayes.

The group is covened by Tim Zenki Steel. Shinro Doubleday Sensei attends the meetings whenever he is able to, offering daisan (interviews) and teishō (talks).

The new zendō is close to Hayes over-ground railway station. On leaving the station, turn left, and it’s a two-minute walk to the bottom of
the hill. The address is:

6 Station Approach,

There is a very good train line with connections from various stations across London, including Charing Cross.
