During the current situation, we continue to offer a wide range of opportunities to learn about, and practise Zen Buddhism, as well as a regular schedule of events:
- In addition to the regular schedule of zazen, we are holding ongoing Thursday evening sessions which explore the koan tradition of Zen practice. These sessions include zazen, a talk and some time for Q and A.beginning on Thursday 2nd July, we'll be looking at koans from the Book of Equanimity collection
- Towards the end of July, we'll be holding a longer intensive retreat (sesshin) running online; dates and details to be confrmed
For more details, please check out the 'Schedule' and 'Getting Started' pages and contact us by email or phone for more information...
The Cloud Water Zen Centre was founded by members of the Zen Buddhist Society, a European Zen Buddhist organisation, which is based in Sweden. We are part of the Cloud-Water Sangha, a group of independent Zen Centres which has grown out of the work of Roshi Philip Kapleau and the Rochester Zen Center.
The aim of the Cloud Water Zen Centre is to provide a dedicated space where people can explore Zen Buddhist training and practice, right in the heart of Glasgow.
We meet weekly to practise zazen (Zen meditation), as well as holding regular weekend events including half and whole day zazen meetings, public talks, sesshin (intensive residential meditation retreats) and regular introductions for people interested in finding out more about Zen Buddhism.
Great is the matter of birth and death.
Life slips quickly by.
Time waits for no one.
Wake up! Wake up!
Don't waste a moment.
