Zen Center


    a living tradition

Founded in 1990, our mission is to provide a place to practice & study zen, and to model sustainable community.  We aim to 'shine one corner of the world', & serve in many ways. All are welcome.  

We offer a residency for monks & students, with a larger body of students & members who support our work & service, with access to a daily schedule of meditation & volunteer projects.  Membership is open to the public, & has no attendance requirements.  Membership benefits & details HERE.

Beyond membership, formal Zen Study & Apprenticeship is available.  A good place to begin is to register for a ZOOM Tuesday Beginner's Meditation & talk.  

Covid-19:  We are offering a limited in-person schedule for members, and public ZOOM meditations.  Covid precautions &  SCHEDULE HERE.
