Zen Association Wales is a Zen Buddhist organisation linking Soto Zen Sanghas across Wales.
Our guiding teacher is Rev. Taikyo Morgans, dharma heir in Nishijima Roshi’s lineage of Soto Zen Buddhism and member of the Soto Zen Buddhist Association of recognised Western Zen teachers.
We facilitate flourishing Zendos in both Lampeter, Mid Wales, and Swansea, South Wales, where we provide Zazen practice and the teachings of Soto Zen Buddhism. We also run regular retreats and events throughout Wales and aim to make Zen Buddhist practice and teachings more accessible to all sentient beings. Zen Association Wales is also affiliated with various Soto Zen groups worldwide.
