This group has no guru. Well, if it does, it's certainly not me. I help co-ordinate meetings and, if people ask, I'll teach meditation. 

Normally I look like this...                                                                                                                                                and maybe once a year, like this.









I received dharma transmission from Koro Kaisan Miles in the Lin Chi (Rinzai) school of Zen. If you're into lineages, you can see mine hereI earn my living as a teacher and academic editor and I utterly fail to make my living from writing books about Zen and meditation.(You can see them here.)  I also like to paint - here's my gallery

Trevor Barton and Andy Smith 

Andy and Trevor host the group sometimes. They live in Kennington, just south of the Oxford ring road.

Andy works in Abingdon as a Senior Software Engineer. His company even dishes out their https://home.sophos.com product for free these days. Trevor is currently a house bear one day a week. The other four days he writes novels. You can see them at https://www.trevorbarton.co.uk. (You need to pay for Trevor’s novels, unfortunately. Unless you find them on a dodgy Russian pirate site. Which has happened. As has fan fiction.) They both like mountains, gardens, sci-fi, 70’s disco, and 
cheap ice cream.
