A Zen Buddhist Contemplative Practice

We are a new order rooted in the ancient teachings of Zen. We are inclusive, contemplative and are what we like to call a backyard practice.

After many years of spiritual practice we discovered an inward inclination to live a more contemplative life. Despite living in an urban setting, we live the life of quiet reflection without rule or imposed structure. As we practice we find silence, meditation, solitude, study and work to be the Way to finding and being our true Self.

We maintain a small zendo, look after two dogs and are friendly to our neighbors.

We welcome those who might be inclined to live a contemplative life right in the middle of ordinary circumstances. We offer little in the way of imposed structure or rule but point the way to find the Dharma through essays, good words, books, art, lay and priest ordination and contemplative practices. If you feel drawn to a contemplative life right where you are and might find some connection to others beneficial, please contact us by e-mail.

We hold no bias toward any particular cultural expressions of Buddhism and embrace varied and multiple approaches to practice and teachings according to the needs of the individual or group.

All faiths are welcomed.

There are no fees, no membership cards, and no bylaws.

We offer the Dharma.
