Update on Lakes retreat just added

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.
