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 course will begin on Thursday 28th April. Check out the information on the 'Getting Started' links or get in touch for more details
We will be celebrating Vesak on Saturday 28th May. Please get in touch if you'd like to find out more

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.
