Encountering Spirituality Today
Empty Moon Zen is a network of Zen practitioners. We gather from across North America and from around the world, in several physical locations as well as online.
While we are profoundly rooted in the wisdom of Mahayana Buddhism as taught within the Zen traditions, we are also a wildly open community of practice. We include Unitarian Universalist, Jewish, Christian, pagan, atheist, and many other pilgrims of the heart as full companions on the intimate way.
Our community welcomes all regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or previous experience. We are committed to supporting all those seeking to cultivate authentic and rigorous spiritual practice in the Zen tradition.
Come explore the Great Way with us!
We are led by a group of experienced practitioners, both lay and ordained, and offer training opportunities drawing on our Soto heritage and the Harada-Yasutani koan curriculum.
We have practice opportunities every day of the week, both online and in-person.
If you are new to Zen and wondering where to start, or if you are an experienced practitioner looking to deepen your practice, there are a variety of resources here to support you.
