Mountains & Rivers Order

Zen Buddhism is a spiritual tradition which supports our journey deep within to uncover our inherent wisdom and compassion. Never before has the need to understand the universe been so important to the life of this great planet. Dating back some 2,500 years to the historical Buddha, through Zen practice we discover our true nature by engaging a simple yet profound form of meditation called zazen which has the potential to transform our experience of ourselves and every aspect of our lives.
