Olympia Zen Center is the home temple of the Order of Ryokan in the Soto Zen Buddhist tradition. Practicing in Olympia since 1995, we offer meditation, services, retreats, study, training and experience in all forms of traditional Soto Zen practice open to everyone, along with residency for practicing students at the center. We emphasize the teachings of Priest-Poet , with whom we are in lineage. We are just 5 miles from the center of downtown Olympia on a peaceful, quiet site at the edge of a lake along the Chehalis Western Trail.
We are completely supported by donations which come from the heart of Generosity of our many benefactors.
Please contribute products to the YWCA Other Bank for 400 individuals in need every week. A collection bin is located in the entry way to the Zendo. They need: personal hygiene, diapers, and cleaning supplies.
