Founded in 1990, our mission is to provide a place to promote spiritual insight & fulfillment, through the practice & study of Zen Buddhism.  Our Zen Center is a residential community of monks & students, as well as a broad group of members, students & friends.  We aim to model sustainable community & to offer a refreshing approach to spiritual practice.  We work to 'shine one corner of the world', & serve in diverse ways. All are welcome.  
 

Members can access a daily schedule of meditation, monthly retreats, apprenticeship, & caretaking stewardships at the Center.  Membership is open to the public, & has no attendance requirements.  Membership benefits & details HERE.

 

For the public we offer meditation instruction, plant-based meals, temple stay guest rooms, and retreats.  A green-roof & rain garden tea house is in the works.  Covid has de-railed a lot.  Please check our calendar for current offerings.


A good place to explore the Center, meditation, or Zen, 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.
