In Rideau Lakes Zen, a person practices keeping one-point, or moving from the hara by relaxing, thinking and moving with their weight to the underside, and by putting their mind 2-3" below their navel.
Being familiar with and adhering to Rideau Lakes Zen etiquette
are requirements of being able to attend group activities.
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, art and outdoor family activities. These activities are geared towards leading people to practice exercises, study and do meditations on their own. This empowers individuals to learn directly from their greatest teacher, the Universe within.
