Welcome to the Kin-Hin Zen Centre,
a non-residential rooftop zendo
located near Kovalam Beach in Kerala.
Kin-Hin offers zazen/zen meditation sittings and courses for individuals and small groups.
"To sit zazen alone is so difficult it is almost impossible. For effective zazen it is important to practise sitting with a group at least occasionally"

Hi ..My name is Karen Sivan
Someone asked me what benefit I get from sitting. I replied that it reminds me of who I’m not! I myself do not understand exactly why it is so important for me to practice, but when we sit together,
I understand a little more and I am thankful for all of the life turns that brought me to the place I am today.
The support found in group sitting is incalculable. Personally, it gives me the strength to carry on and helps me through the times of doubt and uncertainty that invariably come to test me.

Had such a great experience with Karen. She makes learning meditation enjoyable and takes any anxiety someone might have coming in away. Be sure not to miss her amazing breakfast!,
