"Unless one knows the essence of studying the Way, it is impossible to practice it; for how, otherwise could one determine what is right and what is wrong? Those who now study the Way through the practice of zazen naturally transmit this essence."

Eihei Dogen Zenji

Founder of Soto Zen

More About Our Practice

Zen sitting, Zazen, is our most important matter. All of our actions begin with the spiritual practice of Zazen which is the deepest form of prayer. We also hold ceremonies in which we chant, voicing the Buddhadharma.

The Zafu

The Zafu cushion is used to sit quietly in meditation, but we also offer benches and chairs. This makes it suitable for all ages and abilities to experience profound and restorative silence as we sit together.

Zendo and Dharma Hall

The Zendo, or Dharma hall is our sacred place of practice. A statue of the Buddha reminds us of the virtues advocated in Zen practice and exemplified by the Buddha and our two founders Eihei Dogen Zenji and Keizan Jokin Zenji.
