In Oslo and Akershus there are five meditation groups, two in Oslo and three in Akershus.
The Sangha of Floating Clouds, Grønland
The Sangha of Floating Clouds (the large Oslo group) has two regular meeting times, in the same place.
The group meets once a week for deep relaxation, meditation and sharing about their own practice (Dharma sharing). The Tuesdays closest to full moon we read ethical exercises (five Mindfulness Trainings) together.
We meet Tuesdays at 18:30-20:45 at Rinzai zensenter in Grønlandsleiret 31 (next to the paint store), between ground floor and 1st floor.
New participants are welcome to introductory sessions once a month.
See homepage to find out about the dates with introductory sessions.
