Welcome to Zen Peace Centre
THE GATE OF VAST EMPTINESS
Your search has begun. The self is empty, the Ten Thousand Things are empty, Enlightenment is empty. Nothing is holy, and yet, the Gate of Vast Emptiness stands open asking "Who Are You?"
Zen Peace Centre is a place of Buddhist practice. It is dedicated to awakening to the reality of our life and living compassionately in this society and for the sake of all beings.
Our core practice is Shikantaza, a form of meditation that allows us to engage in the alive quality of every single moment.
This type of Zazen allows us to see reality from a new perspective and to fully actualize our Bodhisattva vows in the world.
We commit ourselves to doing this by being open to respond to the cries of the world, to dismantle oppression and injustice. We commit ourselves to being peace advocates in the world and promoting the practice of humility.
