Daizan is a Rinzai Zen Master who trained in Japan, before returning to the UK and going on walking pilgrimage, starting right here on the Isle of Wight.

On the Summer Solstice we will be at St Catherines Lighthouse in Niton to sit in meditation as the sun rises. Then we will hold a day of Zen in Fishbourne, which you are welcome to join in.

A guide to times:

10.30am – 12.30pm – Zen practice 12.30pm – 1.30pm – Bring lunch to share 1.30pm – 3.30pm – Walking, creating, writing poetry

Please note that parking is limited at the Woodland Retreat, so please share lifts or find alternative transport where you can.

For the meditation at sunrise you can just turn up – no need to book – but please book your place if you wish to attend the day of Zen. There is a booking fee to cover room hire and to hold your place, but please make a donation to Zenways for Daizan’s time and teaching.
