About the group

The Cambridge Serene Reflection Meditation Group came together in 1993.  We are a Buddhist Group in the Zen tradition.  People who meet and support each other in practice.

We are affiliated to the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives.

The Order of Buddhist Contemplatives [OBC] follows the practice of the Serene Reflection Meditation tradition, known as Ts'ao-Tung Ch'an in China and Sōtō Zen in Japan. It was established in 1978 by Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett as the international umbrella organization for monasteries, priories [local temples], and meditation groups.  These are currently in  Britain, Canada, Latvia, the Netherlands, and the United States.


The largest centre in Britain  Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey in Northumberland.  The monastic community [men and women] offers retreats and other events for anyone who wishes to learn about meditation and its relevance in daily living.


There are a number of Priories and meditation groups in this country [a list can be found here].  The closest Priory is in Norwich and was established in 2013.
