Welcome to the Penticton Zen Center's Mountains and Waters Sangha and Website.
We are a small group of practitioners coming together for meditation and the practice of authentic zen. We are part of the Sanbo-Zen lineage of Kamakura Japan. Sister Elaine MacInnes Roshi states:
"The practice of Zen offers something simple, direct and accessible to anyone seeking stillness and peace of mind in this busy, frantic world. When we seek and find this peace for ourselves, we then have what it takes to offer it to those around us. The whole of Zen discipline is to make us come alive to the present. When we are sitting, we concentrate on our breathing. Away from our cushion, we are one with our activity."
