Serene Reflection Meditation is part of the Soto Zen tradition of Buddhism. Buddhism is one of the oldest spiritual traditions, and today is practised all over the world, in the Far East and in Great Britain, Europe and America.

Our group is affiliated to the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives, a broader Zen Buddhist organization which includes a number of monasteries, smaller temples, priories and meditation groups in Europe and North America.

The Order was founded by the late Rev. Master Jiyu Kennett. The Milton Keynes group has connections with both Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey, a monastery and retreat centre situated in Northumberland, and Reading Buddhist Priory.
