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.

Zen Meditation for the Bluegrass: Berea

Union Church of Berea

Bluegrass Zen meets on Monday Nights at 6:30 pm at the Union Church of Berea, Ky in their Cowan Chapel. The format will include a half hour of meditation followed by a time for reflective discussion on koans, life and the universe. All are welcome! Help Zen Meditation and Koan Study make its debut in Berea. We look forward to seeing you there.

Come Meditate With Us -- Meditation, Community, Conversation

Unitarian Universalist Church of Lexington

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. Chairs are supplied. If you would like to use cushions please bring them along. ds
