Who We Are

Zen Association Wales is a Zen Buddhist organisation linking Soto Zen Sanghas across Wales.

We facilitate flourishing Zendos in Swansea, South Wales and Lampeter, Mid Wales, where we encourage Zazen practice and provide the teachings of Soto Zen Buddhism to a diverse community of practitioners. We also run regular retreats, events and visits throughout Wales and provide opportunities for practitioners to connect with affiliated sanghas worldwide.
