  • Meditation is the basis of a life of splendid health, untiring energy, unfailing love, and abiding wisdom. It is the very foundation of that deep inner peace for which every one of us longs.
    —Eknath Easwaran


  • Zen Meditation  

    Zen Meditation is a practice of getting here. As we sit, we train to transcend the habits of conditioned mental processes and bring attention back to the present. Meditation not only assists us to get to that center of stillness, it allows us to see and see through all the ways we are caused to suffer.

    Zen Meditation is a specific practice and we encourage all—beginners and experienced meditators—to schedule an orientation.

  • Please Note
    We have discontinued our in-person meetings for the time being. We’ll be in touch when we are ready to resume. Gasshō

  • How to Be at Mountain Zen Practice Cener

  • To maintain the contemplative space that assists with an introspective focus, we request your observance of these guidelines.

    Keep the Silence
    This is a no cell phone zone.

    Wear Modest Clothing
    Full-length pants or skirts, no tank tops, tights, or sleeveless clothing

    Keep an Inward Focus
    This space is for contemplation only. We request participants refrain from social, business, or other interactions.

    Focus on Practice
    We come together to experience ourselves as we are—unbound. To that end, we attempt to minimize all distractions. We ask that you take responsibility to honor that focus in how you conduct yourself.


  • Guidelines for the Meditation Hall

    • Please maintain silence as you are entering and leaving.
    • Please be seated in the Meditation Hall at least 5 minutes before the meditation period is scheduled to begin.
    • Please do not wear strong scents.
    • Meditation cushions, benches and chairs are available.
  • Group Discussions

  • The Buddha gave us Sangha as one of the Three Jewels for a reason. Without the support of those who also walk this path, Sangha, the spiritual journey can be a lonely one. Facilitated group discussions help us be with others in a contemplative attitude, a safe and intimate space to open up and share our practice in the presence of others. In a powerful way that has to be experienced, we see and appreciate our humanity while developing a growing compassionate awareness of how alike we are. Each of us benefits from the guidance offered to all who attend.

  • Individual Guidance

  • Individual guidance is available either in person or by phone. If you are interested, please email for additional information.
