We are a sacred order, bringing into being a harmonious and loving world through the practice of meditative, compassionate awareness and mindful stewardship.

This sangha is a branch of the Hollow Bones Rinzai Zen Order. It is led by Bukkai Ted Hall, a priest-in-training and student of Jun Po Denis Kelly Roshi, Abbot & Founder of Hollow Bones & Mondo Zen.

We practice zazen (seated meditation) and yoga together, offer Zen services and Mondo Zen sessions, and hold occasional workshops. We will also extend our practice outward in rippling circles, through compassionate, community service.

"Mondo Zen training is one of the most important, creative, and novel additions to the meditation pantheon, highly recommended for the accelerated effect it has on spiritual growth and development. Definitely check it out!" - Ken Wilber, The Integral Vision

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
