My name is Reverend Alicia and I am a Buddhist monastic ordained in the Soto Zen tradition of Buddhism with the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives. Sitting Buddha Hermitage in Cromford, near Matlock and close to the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, is where I live and practise.

At the Hermitage I offer an introduction to meditation on Saturday afternoons, weekly meditation evenings, day retreats, and solitary retreat accommodation for those established in the practice of this tradition.

The long term aim is to gather the support and necessary finances to move to a property where we can offer to practitioners of the Soto Zen school of Buddhism the opportunity to do solitary retreat in individual hermitages in a quiet rural location with the practical support and spiritual guidance of the resident monk.
