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.
We are particiapting again this year in Doors Open Day Glasgow. Come and visit on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th September, if you'd like to have a look around
Our next Introductory course will be a Saturday morning workshop in October. Check out the information on the 'Getting Started' links or get in touch for more details

Great is the matter of birth and death.
Life slips quickly by.

Wake up! Wake up!
Don't waste a moment.
