a living tradition
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.
