Who we are
HedZen is a small London-based company, teaching mindfulness and meditation from the ancient Rinzai Zen tradition. The Zen tradition of meditation dates back many centuries, and its benefits are gaining more and more scientific validation in ongoing research. Our primary aim is to share the invaluable age-old wisdom and practical experience of Zen, in order to bring clarity, balance, awareness (and so much more) to those who seek it.
What we do
HedZen offer a variety of ways to learn about Zen and experience the countless benefits that the practice brings- these include free introductory sessions, free weekly group drop-ins, private coaching, meditation workshops, mindfulness and meditation courses, skype sessions and more. Our HedZen groups meet every day at various locations across West London.

Julian Daizan Skinner was the first Englishman to go to Japan and become a Roshi or Zen master in the rigorous Rinzai tradition of Zen. Daizan Roshi is the creator and founder of the Zenways Sangha- recognised by the College of Mindful Clinicians for its role in developing and delivering meditation programmes and retreats and providing certification and supervision to its teachers.
