Lake District Zen Meditation Centre

The Lake District Zen Centre started in January 2015 and is growing rapidly as people realise its huge potential and the benefits it can bring to their lives. We teach Zen meditation at various locations in the English Lake District and in Ulverston. Our teacher, Boo Ahm, comes over from Korea four times per year. This is a uniquely rare opportunity to learn from a genuine Zen master.

Weekend and longer courses run four times per year in Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. This gives participants the chance to experience something new in their practice that they have never experienced before in their lives.
