Beauty is so quietly woven through our ordinary days that we hardly notice it.

Grey Heron Zen

The Grey Heron Zen Dublin welcomes people of all faiths and of no expressed faith tradition, to sit together to practice Zazen, or sitting meditation. We are grateful to be able to use the facilities in the Dominican Retreat House in Tallaght Village, near the site of the 8th century monastery of St. Maelruan.

“Love does not make life easy. It supports us in doing that which is difficult.”

George Eliot


Grey Heron Zen has been active in Dublin since September 2011. Zazen, or sitting meditation, is the essence of our practice.
