Who are we?

The Sussex Sangha are a group of ordinary people with ordinary lives, interested in finding ways of living that embrace the possibility of being both deeply contemplative and fully engaged with the world.

We meet regularly in East Grinstead to sit Zazen together and share Dharma study and practice, usually on a Thursday evening.

Our Sangha is affiliated with the Appamada Zen Center in Austin, Texas, where Flint Sparks is a resident teacher.

Programs of study are chosen collaboratively, and include topics such as the Buddhist Precepts, Buddhist Psychology, and Koans.

We are friendly and inclusive – and there is always cake!
