Living in an awakened space

Residency is available for students who wish a deeper, focused practice working closely with the teacher. Daily immersion in the life of the Zen Centre is a catalyst to internalize and manifest the bodhisattva heart. The residents may have outside work or education but will arrange time to practice some meals, cleaning, gardening and other centre tasks together.

Zen students visiting Vancouver from other centres may inquire if there is a room available during their stay. It is expected that they participate in the centre’s activities when they have free time and make a financial contribution.
