What we're about

Wy'East Zen Center (also known previously as Sandy Sangha ) is a diverse group of people that share a practice of meditation, discussion and sangha (community). Our purpose is to support each other in exploring Zen practice and Buddhist teachings and how they apply to daily life. Our community meets weekly for a period of silent meditation followed by discussion on a variety of topics related to Zen and mindfulness practice. We share occasional meditation retreats, and we are looking forward to gathering at other times to do mindfulness activities, like mindful hikes, camping, volunteering, knitting, sharing coffee or tea, going to dinner, photography, potlucks, social hikes, art festivals, snowshoeing, and meditation at homes or in the forest, picnics, etc...... We are hoping to to get out and enjoy many activities that we all are interested in, while getting to know each other more deeply, outside of our weekly gatherings. Please consider being an event organizer. The more events we have, the more vibrant our group will be.

We are grounded in the Soto Zen tradition but our practice is open to everyone, regardless of faith or beliefs. No previous experience in meditation is necessary. An introduction to Zen meditation is available and we are happy to help you get started. We are associated with Dharma Rain Zen Center in Portland Oregon.

Please note, this is not an official group covered under our incorporated non-profit status in the State of Oregon. It is a volunteer group, to socialize outside of our Zendo. It may or may not continue, depending on participation. We will get feedback from our steering committee, on the on-going operations of the group.
