Exeter Chan Group

Chan Buddhism is the Chinese forerunner of Zen. We emphasise meditation practice and mindfulness over tradition and doctrine, and seek to establish the relevance of Buddhism in everyday life, with the minimum of ritual. Group meetings, retreats and other activities are open equally to Buddhists and non-Buddhists.

We meet at Friends Meeting House, Wynards Lane, Magdalen Street, Exeter, EX2 4HU. The room is upstairs. Time: 7.15 – 9.15 pm on most Wednesdays. If you are coming for the first time please call in advance.
