We are a community of practitioners in the Soto Zen tradition of Buddhism. Our emphasis is on sitting meditation, or zazen, and the study of the Buddha’s teachings. We invite everyone interested in meditation to join us. We maintain a welcoming and inclusive practice community.

We practice settling into the present moment with our whole body, mind, and heart in meditation, as well as in everyday life. Our group offers a meditation schedule, as well as classes, retreats, ceremonies, and other events. We look forward to meeting you.
