Welcome

Norwich Zen Buddhist Priory is a place of practice for the Soto Zen tradition of Buddhism. It is home to a senior monk in the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives, Reverend Leoma Hague, who offers teaching and guidance to anyone who wishes to meditate and live a Buddhist life. The Priory is supported by a group of lay Buddhists in Norwich and across East Anglia who follow the Soto Zen tradition. 

You are very welcome to come along for an introduction to how we meditate and practise. There are various options for newcomers who would like to find out more.

Our form of Buddhism is centred on the practice of zazen or serene reflection meditation. Soto Zen emphasises meditation as the basis for being still within the events of life and experiencing things as they are.
