Notes and Events:

The main activity at Harrow Zazenkai is sitting - zazen. And in this context we unfold the forms of chanting, listening to teisho tapes by Anzan Hoshin roshi, Daruma-kata Aiki - a movement practice - and oryoki. Practice interviews are regularly available with practice advisors at Dainen-ji by telephone and email. We also have the opportunity for face to face interviews with visiting practice advisors when we hold Introduction to Zen Workshops. Formal students travel regularly to Dainen-ji and this helps keep the practice environment fresh.

In addition to our daily schedule, one-day sittings are held monthly. Other sitting times and instruction in sitting posture are available by appointment.

Main Contact: James  Email  
Notes and Events:

Samatha means calm. Samatha meditation is a gentle but effective way to train the mind to develop inner strength and wisdom using breathing mindfulness.

The Samatha Twickenham class is open to anyone who wishes to attend. No previous experience of meditation is required and beginners are welcome. Please feel free to join the class any week.

There is no charge for teaching, but we welcome donations to cover the cost of the room hire (suggested donation £4 to £5). During the meeting, there is usually a talk and a group meditation practice. Please bring a cushion on which you are comfortable sitting. Because everybody's experience of meditation is different, there is an opportunity each week to speak to the teacher one-to-one, before or after the meeting. Tea and coffee will be available.


St Margaret’s Catholic Church is a modern building set back from the eastern side of St Margaret’s Road, opposite Tescos.  There is a car park outside.  Approaching from the north, from the A316, the turning for the car park is on the left just before the bridge over the railway line.  Approaching from the south along St Margarets Road, the turning for the church is the first right after St Margaret's station.

The church is a short walk from St Margaret’s railway station for trains from Waterloo, Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Putney, Barnes, Mortlake, Richmond and Twickenham. It is also a short walk from the bus stop for the H37 bus which runs from Richmond to Hounslow.
