We are an easy-going, friendly community of lay Zen students. Please join us! Our meditation practice is rooted in the Korean Zen tradition, in the lineage of Zen Master Seung Sahn. Our teachings, forms and meditation practices are open to all people regardless of religious or cultural background. We practice inclusivity with a home-grown community flavor of gentleness, sincerity, good humor and flexibility. Come and visit – our mind/heart doors are open.
