About Clouds in Water
Clouds in Water Zen Center offers the opportunity for people to practice Zen Buddhism, whatever their background or faith may be. Zen Buddhism is about awakening the heart-mind to its own inherent wisdom and compassion.
To facilitate this awakening, we offer classes and workshops, sesshin and retreats, individual meetings with the teachers, community meditation and chanting, and support for practice in daily life.
We believe that guidance from experienced teachers and the support of a warm and open community are essential elements on the journey of opening the heart.
Clouds in Water Zen Center welcomes people of every race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, creed, religious background, ability and disability. We welcome single people, people in committed relationships, families and children. We welcome you!
Our facility includes 3800 square feet of the Northern Warehouse building’s first floor. We have a large zendo (meditation hall), kitchen, library/lounge, auxiliary zendo, offices, and interview room.
Parking is available in the nearby parking lots (for about $2.75) or on the street. Click here for more parking info.
The Northern Warehouse building also houses other nonprofit and commercial organizations (galleries, arts support groups, etc.) and 52 units of housing for artists.
