This is a short, introductory lesson to help folks begin a meditation practice. We'll teach you what you need to know to begin zen meditation. The instruction is followed by a dharma talk from one of our teachers and a chance to ask questions. Refreshments and social time follow that at 8:30 p.m. You'll find more information about our retreats and workshops on our website ( and in our weekly email newsletter (

What we're about

Cambridge Zen Center ( one of the largest Buddhist residential Zen Training centers in the country. CZC was founded in 1973 by early students of Zen Master Seung Sahn, the first Korean Zen master to teach in the West. We offer daily morning and evening meditation and chanting, and weekly public talks and instruction free of charge. Retreats and accommodations are offered for a reasonable price. Zen meditation is a powerful way to clear our mind of habitual thinking. It helps us to balance ourselves and our world by pointing us towards our own wisdom and compassion. New friendships are formed and support for doing this practice is found by coming together for this special purpose.

We have a new website (! And a weekly email newsletter ( with an inspirational quote and all upcoming events.
