The Zen Centre of Vancouver offers a refuge in this ever busier world to regain our inherent groundedness, clarity and compassion. Through meditation and engagement with everyday life, the Zen Buddhist tradition guides us to directly experience our true nature and to more fully and freely contribute in the world.
A demanding, yet compassionate way
Anyone with a sincere desire to practice finds at the Zen Centre of Vancouver a wholehearted and authentic guidance, with a comprehensive meditation program. Our lineage is in the Rinzai Zen tradition, informed by the warm and clear style of our guiding teacher, Eshin Godfrey.
