StoneWater Zen Centre
We are a Zen Buddhist organisation in the lineage of Taizan Maezumi Roshi. StoneWater Zen Sangha has a traditional, authentic lineage and has been established in Liverpool, in the North West of England for over fifteen years. The Sangha is growing and there are now groups across the UK. Founded on the teachings of the Soto Zen tradition, StoneWater Zen’s aim is to promote and develop the practice and transmission of Zen Buddhism through meditation, study, precepts, Buddhist psychology and stewardship of meditation centres that are open to all regardless of gender, race or sexuality.
The group is led by Dr David Keizan Scott Sensei and is affiliated to the White Plum Asanga. Our teachers and senior monks offer a regular weekly meditation schedule, several intensive retreats annually, and maintain city centre and rural training centres locally and nationally.
“It is our wish to promote compassion and understanding for life as it is.
May penetrating light dispel the darkness of ignorance.
May we realise the Buddha Way together.”
