“Spiritual practice … is in essence the practice of maturity.

The spiritual path leads us to the places

we are meant to occupy in this world.

Robes, chanting, ceremony, meditation, text study,

and all the rest may be valuable in their own right,

but their real purpose lies in the service of the path toward maturity.

In spiritual practice we use these traditional techniques and practices

as vehicles to warmly connect us so that we can help each other to find

the true, lasting, and ongoing maturity that each of our lives requires.”

~ Zoketsu Norman Fischer


A Zen practice group meets regularly in East Grinstead.

All are welcome.  You do not need to know anything about Zen.

Please go to the Sussex Sangha website for further information,

and contact me if you would like to come along.
