A Community practising and teaching Dogen’s Zen for over 25 years
The White Wind Zen Community is the Sangha of students practising under the direction of Ven. Anzan Hoshin roshi, his Dharma-successors Ven. Shikai Zuiko o-sensei and Ven. Jinmyo Renge osho-ajari, and the Practice Council at the Zen Centre of Ottawa (Honzan Dainen-ji) and its branch practice groups or centres and students around the world. The purpose of the Community is to provide a context in which the Transmission of the Complete Teachings, practice, and realization of the Way of Dogen's Lineage of Zen can take place. To this end, the Zen Community provides a comprehensive and integral format of practice that is structured so that each student may practise in a manner that is appropriate for him or her, from associate student to celibate monastic.
