NKZC provides a place and the support of community for those interested in the contemplative practice of Zen. Our intention is that you feel welcomed and that any mystery or discomfort perceived to be part of a meditation practice is set aside.
How you choose to participate in the NKZC or other affiliated zen centers in the area is up to you: membership is encouraged but not required. Donations are gratefully accepted and appreciated; participant contributions are the sole means of support for the NKZC.
In the spirit of one of the first Zen teachers in America, Sokei-an Shigetsu Sasaki, "All who come are welcome and those who leave are not pursued."
