What we're about

Bluegrass Zen is a community within the Pacific Zen School which promotes a culture of awakening and transformation of heart. Through the use of meditation, koans and creativity we find a flexibility and a freedom to respond to life as it rises to meet us. Simply, we encourage folks to move into freedom one step at a time embracing the kindness in all of experience.

Come Meditate With Us -- Meditation, Community, Conversation

Join David Parks, Sensei and members of Bluegrass Zen for an evening of meditation, koan study and inquiry into the true nature of things, into your true nature. Ours is a direct approach to awakening through the guidance and counsel of the great Chan masters, their tradition brought up-to-date for 21st Century practitioners. A truly unique approach to Zen. Relaxed, we shine the light within to find the seamlessness of things. An experience you won't want to miss. No experience in meditation is required. We operate knowing that we already have all that we need -- if we were just able to wake up and see it. All groups are online until further notice. Held on Zoom you may register for our Thursday evening meditation by linking from our website, bluegrasszen.org
