Schedule

The Toronto Zen Centre offers zazen meditation, sesshins (intensive periods of meditation), chanting services and many other events and practice opportunities. Please check the quarterly calendar for the schedule of events.

A note about our schedule: if you've never been to the Centre, we ask that you contact us before attending your first sitting. People who are brand new to Buddhism and meditation should attend an Introductory Workshop - they are offered on a regular basis. Have experience with Zen Buddhism and you'd like to join us? All are welcome, but please contact our office to make arrangements before coming.
