What is Open Mind Zen?
Open Mind Zen is a unique community of lay Zen practitioners, supporting one another as we travel the Way. Our practice is rooted in the traditional school of Japanese Soto Zen Buddhism. From this tradition come a number of long-standing training methods such as sitting meditation (Zazen), Koan practice, and Dokusan (one-on-one interactions between student and teacher).
These traditional practices are supplemented with a number of modern practice methods that are designed to make Zen practice more accessible to the modern, American student.
