Brighton Soto Zen Group is led by Heather and Jay, who are ordained members of the International Zen Association.The Association was set up in the 1960’s by a Japanese monk, Master Taisen Deshimaru, who came to France to establish Soto Zen Buddhism in Europe.

The Brighton group has offered regular practice in the area for 10 years, and has recently been fortunate enough to move to Studio iO. We offer twice-weekly periods of zazen – formal meditation in the Soto Zen tradition.
