Rideau Lakes Zen

Many of the Rideau Lakes Zen activities are practiced outdoors along the Rideau Canal corridor, a designated UNESCO World Heritage site and year-round public outdoor park system that is 202 km long travelling from Kingston to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

​However, almost any location will do.
While practicing Rideau Lakes Zen, individuals learn to naturally drift with clouds and flow with water along the Rideau's veritable smorgasbord of interconnected lakes, rivers, streams, forests, pathways and parks.
