Welcome

Zen is a thorough investigation into what it means to live this human life with heart and insight. The practice is not an arrival, but an ongoing way of meeting our lives and the world around us with ease, clarity and purpose. The Zen West community offers an intimate setting to engage Zen practice adapted and expressed within a contemporary context. Our sangha fosters genuine warm relationships and values practice connected to the earth and responsive to social and ecological challenges.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We acknowledge that suffering is a human condition that can be made worse because of biases or prejudices for or against any race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, sexual identity, political party, or other belief or position. Our sangha welcomes and affirms all who come here to practice who are willing to work toward respectful acceptance of others across our many differences, harmonizing the one and the many.
