Introduction to Zen available in person and online

Introduction to Zen sessions 

Introduction sessions are  running both in person in the Liverpool zendo and on Zoom introductions. We’d encourage people to live within travelling distance of Liverpool to attend in person if possible as there are some parts of practice, such as the posture, that it is easier to learn in person. We have learned that one of the advantages of Zoom is that it has allowed people from all over the country and beyond to join us for introduction sessions and then to go on to sit with us regularly. By continuing to offer the introduction sessions online too, we hope to continue this.

Content includes:

  • Finding a stable and comfortable meditation posture
  • How to make meditation a habit, even in difficult times
  • Dealing with thoughts and emotions while sitting
  • What to expect when sitting with a Zen group, either online or in person.
  • Questions you have about the practice.


If you are new to Zen practice or to Stonewater Zen and would like to join us for an introduction to Zen please email Sarah on   Please state where you live so we know whether you can attend at Liverpool or online.
