Rideau Lakes Zen is a family oriented, complete system, a top down tradition. We learn about the Universe first hand while observing and studying nature, by learning and practicing misogi (like a baptism every day) and by practicing various Rideau Lakes Zen exercises.
There are classes for the general public (beginners), for Rideau Lakes Zen monastics (advanced), mixed classes and guest outings.
Being familiar with and adhering to Rideau Lakes Zen etiquette
are requirements of being able to attend group activities.
Single individuals, families, faithful loving couples, the young and the young at heart who are willing to do the work to begin to connect with the Light of the Universe are welcome to inquire.
Well-behaved, leashed family pets are welcome to accompany us on certain group outings at the leader's discretion.
Activities are randomly planned. There is Zen class, group outdoor activities and a yearly (day) camp.
We practice a variety of indoor and outdoor activities including meditation, photography, art and outdoor family activities. These activities are geared towards leading people to practice exercises, study and do photography, art, prayer and meditations on their own. This empowers individuals to begin to learn directly from their greatest teacher, the Universe.
