Chisoku An Zendo

Centre description
Chisoku An Zendo is a Rinzai Zen Zendo dedicated to the support and training of lay practitioners through regular practise of Zazen. In addition to zazen practise the Centre encourages and supports the practise of other Zen Arts including martial arts. It is located in the premises of Lotus Therapies Yoga Studio 115 Centre Street in Meadow Lake The name Chisoku An Zendo was formally granted to this Zendo in May of 2010 by Eido Shimano Roshi, prior to the unfolding of events which gave rise to his retirement as Abbott of Dai Bosatsu Zendo Kongo-ji. The name Chisoku An is translated as Place of Abiding in Contentedness.
Dharmic activities
The Sangha gathers for Chanting and Zazen (meditation) on Mondays from 6:45 to 8:00 and Thursdays from 6:45 to 7:30 a.m. On a monthly basis, full day retreats and/or workshops are conducted. Once a month an informal Dharma Talk is offered, together with a Sangha meeting. Sesshin is held twice yearly, in the spring and winter (Rohatsu). With the support of individuals who have completed training at Ichichukai Temple in Japan and continue to practise at Brooklyn Aikikai Dojo, Misogi Harai practise is also offered periodically to the Sangha and community at large.
Community service
Through a collective committment to work practise/samu the Sangha members offer themselves to their community.
