"With no hindrance in the mind, no hindrance therefore no fear; far beyond deluded thoughts, this is nirvana..."
~The Heart Sutra
OUR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
We welcome everyone to meditate with us without regard to spiritual or religious (if any) background. We are committed to liberation from anguish and unease that hinder our full appreciation of life, and to the awakening of wisdom and compassion.
Because our lineage descends from both Soto and Rinzai masters, we offer a blend of these styles, including just sitting in group sessions and individual koan introspection with an authorized teacher.
Zen came to America from Japan, and there from China, and to China from India, where the historic Buddha one day twirled a flower and his successor smiled. We invite you to join us in the fresh, simple, living practice that is Zen.
