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.
Our next Introduction to Zen workshop will be on Saturday 21st January. Check out the information on the 'Getting Started' links or get in touch for more details.
Later this month we will also be running the 'Zen and Everyday Life' course which focusses on how to integrate Buddhist practice into our daily life. See courses in 'Getting Started' or get in touch for more details
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.
