meditation & community

The London Zen Centre's mission is to make the deeply transformative Zen Buddhist teachings accessible to everyone so they can experience for themselves the depth, insight and joy of the Zen path.  

At the London Zen Centre you can learn Zen meditation, study and work with Zen koans, start or deepen a meditation practice and work directly with a an authentic Zen master.

Our Zen Buddhist community, or sangha, is a place of warmth, support and social responsibility. We want to do our bit to care for the world and its beings. 

The Zen path is a broad and inclusive path that shows us that our life, just as it is, is the gateway to freedom. It's a path walked together, not alone and you are welcome to join us. If you would like to learn about Zen you are invited to attend an Introduction to Zen Class, come to a Tuesday evening orientation at the Zen Centre, or join the community and become a member - everyone is welcome.
