What we’re about

This meetup group will announce special events and activities held at the Austin Zen Center.  Established in 2000, AZC was founded to carry on the warm-hearted teaching of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, as recorded in Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind. Suzuki Roshi's teaching follows the Soto Zen tradition brought from China to Japan in the thirteenth century by Zen master Eihei Dogen. The Soto school of Zen has all the formality and discipline of other schools of Zen, but is particularly characterized by its patient and tender-hearted approach to practice. Austin Zen Center offers many opportunities to practice the wisdom and compassion of Zen Buddhism in the heart of Texas, including daily meditation (zazen), services, work practice, Dharma talks, classes and workshops, silent retreats, as well as opportunities to discuss your Zen practice with a teacher and be a part of our growing sangha.

Anyone interested in finding out more about Zen practice is encouraged to give us a visit!
