Cloud Water Zen Centre - Gordon Chambers
Fifth Floor, 82 Mitchell St, G1 3NA
1903, Frank Burnet
The Cloud Water Zen Centre is open to people of any faith or belief. It offers a space for quiet meditation and reflection, set in an impressive 8 storey red sandstone building in the heart of Glasgow city centre.
Cloud Water Zen Centre opened in the autumn of 2017. It offers people living in Glasgow and the West of Scotland the opportunity to explore and practise Zen Buddhism. It was established in order to provide a quiet and peaceful space right in the heart of the city, where people can enjoy some silence and calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Visiting the Zen centre offers the possibility of finding out more about the design and organisation of a Zen Buddhist temple, as well as learning about how a Buddhist temple functions and what it has to offer. Visitors are welcome to participate in a short guided tour of the temple, as well as the possibility of simply spending time in a relaxing and comfortable space, designed for quiet reflection and meditation. There will also be a Zen Buddhist teacher available to provide more information and answer any questions that you may have about the space, the building and Zen, as well as the opportunity to attend a public talk in the Zen Centre for anyone interested in finding out more about Buddhism and Zen.
