Our Centre is growing and we need your help to make it happen! Our plans include expanding our Buddha Hall and adding additional space in the basement.
The Toronto Zen Centre offers zazen meditation, sesshins (intensive periods of meditation), chanting services and many other events and practice opportunities.
