WELCOME

We are a community of practitioners in the Soto Zen tradition of Buddhism. Our emphasis is on sitting meditation, or zazen, and the study of the Buddha’s teachings. We practice settling into the present moment with our whole body, mind and heart in meditation as well as in everyday life. We work to assure that all people who come to practice with Arcata Zen Group are seen and heard, respected and included.

We offer a daily meditation schedule, as well as classes, retreats, ceremonies, and other events. Many activities are in person with a zoom option (hybrid). Please check the calendar for up-to-date information. We invite everyone interested in meditation to join us. We look forward to meeting you.
