Notes and Events:

Zen River is an international residential training temple, that offers a year round Buddhist programme under the guidance of Anton Tenkei Coppens. As a successor to Genpo Merzel Roshi and dharma grandson of Taizan Maezumi Roshi, Tenkei Roshi is a member of the White Plum Lineage and works to transmit the teaching of this lineage in Europe.

The temple is located in a beautiful property on the outskirts of Uithuizen, a small village on the northern edge of Holland close to the Waddensea. It enjoys the spaciousness and tranquillity of the country-side and yet it is easily accessible by public transportation.

The programme of Zen River Temple is based on four elements of training, and consists of a daily schedule as well as a calender of retreats and related events. While the continuity of every day practice is being maintained by a core-group of a dozen long-term residents, many Zen River members join regularly to participate in the daily training programme or in retreats. The overnight accommodation has a capacity of thirty five participants. All meals on regular training days are vegetarian.
