What we're about

Madison Rinzai Zen Community (MRZC) is dedicated to preserving and transmitting the teachings of Rinzai Zen Buddhism. We are a friendly, supportive group practicing together at several locations in Madison under the guidance of our teacher, Meido Moore Roshi. You are very welcome to join us! We invite your inquiry or visit to any of our Madison-area locations.

Please see our website (and join our mailing list) at www.madisonrinzaizen.org. Also, our community is a branch of Korinji Rinzai Zen Monastery (about 50 miles away near Reedsburg, WI): see Korinji's site at www.korinji.org.

Finally, please note that most of the members in our community are not on Meetup...so even if a meeting shows few or no participants here, it doesn't mean no one is going! Come out to practice with us, and we look forward to meeting you.
