News Update


Stonewater Zen is hosting a Table Top Sale and Auction on Monday 29th June at 6 pm at the Pen Factory 13 Hope Street, Liverpool L1 9BQ to raise money for communities in Nepal affected by the recent earthquake.  It includes:
 Pies, puddings, BBQ and drinks.
 Live music
And a fantastic range of Raffle prizes and Auction items - including a weekend in a stately home in Cumbria, a weekend at a cottage in Dorset, plus loads of other interesting stuff generously donated by businesses and individuals in Hope Street.
Donations can also be made via the PayPal account of StoneWater Zen Centre Trust (a registered charity) via the DONATE button at the top of this page.
All PayPal donations and 100% of the profits from the fundraising event will go to Nepal and will be channeled through trusted contacts so we know it will get there and be well spent.

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 for over fifteen years. The Sangha is growing and there are now groups across the UK.

The group is led by Dr David Keizan Scott Sensei and is affiliated to the White Plum Asanga.

We provide the facilities for traditional Zen training throughout the week. See our Liverpool schedule for details.

Every year we have two sesshin at Crosby Hall and regular retreats at our zendo in the Lake District. See our events page for details.

We are a warm and friendly group and beginners are always very welcome.

Mission Statement

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.
