What we're about

"In order to meet the challenges facing all of us, we will need a spirituality grounded in the human heart, rather than beliefs or ideals. One that cultivates the best in each of us, challenges us to function at the level of full self-expression, and affirms the fundamental and immeasurable value of every living being." - Seijaku Roshi We strive to live a more authentic, compassionate, and engaged life. "Through daily meditation, prayer, and contemplation, in our Zen Community, we aspire to be transformed in mind and heart by embodying the Buddhadharma (the Path of Loving-Kindness, Compassion, and Service) in ways appropriate for our times."

Anyone no matter ther religious affiliation, faith, or beliefs is welcome to join us in another expression of what we all share in common, a dream for a more loving, compassionate, and kind world.

"For in the final analysis, our most basic common link, is that we all inhabit this small planet, we all breathe the same air, we all cherish our children's futures, and we are all mortal."
