The Southern Palm Zen Group is comprised of people who have come together to build personal and community wisdom through Zen practice. We do so through Zazen (meditation), traditional Zen services, retreats, study groups, social gatherings, and service to others.

Our primary practice form is taken from the Zen tradition but we draw on the insights of other disciplines. The intention is to use the form, like the banks of a river, to direct or awaken the flow of ancient and contemporary wisdom for ourselves and the world we are part of.

At the heart of Zen is not theory, dogma, or belief. However, there is one request; to practice Zazen, a form of meditation which allows people to discover the link which binds them to the presence in themselves and all beings.

Although Zen practice is hundreds of years old, it addresses contemporary questions by bringing extraordinary attention to the midst of so-called "ordinary" circumstances. This practice can transform how we view our lives and how we interact with others.

Personal instruction and interviews with teachers are available. Contact southernpalmzengroup@gmail.com

Meetings every Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. Seewebsite www.floridazen.com for further schedules and directions.

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.
