Full Moon Ceremony

Please join us!

Zazen: What Is It That Thus Comes?
Interested in either starting or deepening your Zen practice in a residential setting with others? Our Guest Practice program is a short term opportunity (one to four weeks) that includes meditation, study, work practice and discussions with other practitioners about Zen Buddhism.
Our online magazine, JustThis, is now an active, alive blog rather than a magazine which comes out in issues. We post pieces as they come in to encourage conversation and interaction between the readers and the writers.
We use the Tuesday night Zen Writing group as the source of many of the postings. As well, we welcome other submissions for consideration.
Visit the JustThis writers and artists in their endeavors.
