We are a community in New York City dedicated to the teaching of the traditional tenets of Zen in a modern context specifically for our time and culture. We promote the practice of clear mind through the regular hosting of Zen ceremony, dharma teachings, Zen meditation meetings, and other edifying contemplative activities such as Zen tea ceremony.
Our events are open to the general public regardless of age, ethnicity, sex/gender identity, sexual orientation, educational background, nationality, immigration status; religious, spiritual, or faith affiliations; physical and mental ability, or any other criteria.
We are affiliated to the Five Mountain Zen Order, which represents the Korean Soen lineage of Zen Master Seung Sahn Dae Jong Sa and also the Vietnamese lineage of Ven. Dr. Thich Thien-An.
