Zen Buddhism Ireland meets in person and online to practise Zen meditation in the Soto Zen Buddhist tradition. Our guiding teacher is Rev. Myozan Kodo, a Soto Zen Buddhist priest in the lineage of Nishijima Roshi and a member of the Soto Zen Buddhist Association of recognised Western Zen teachers. Both new and experienced meditators are welcome.
Zen Buddhism Ireland practises online through our Zen Forum and Online Sittings. If you can’t make it to our regular Monday evening sits in Dublin city centre, this might suit you better. Please contact Myozan to join in and take part. Also, Zen Buddhism Ireland regularly organises retreats where we practice Zazen in noble silence, as well as the traditional ritual forms of the Soto Zen way.
On request, Myozan will prepare students for ‘Jukai’, the ceremony of formally entering the Buddhist path and taking the Precepts. Myozan is also available to officiate at weddings, funerals, naming ceremonies, commitment ceremonies and other ceremonies to mark life transitions. Use the contact page to find out more.
Zen Buddhism Ireland meets every Monday evening at 7:30PM at the Harvest Moon Centre, 24 Baggot Street Lower, Dublin 2.
