Western Zen Buddhism

Offering inquiry into "Original Nature" (Buddha Nature) and Non-Duality.  Practicing Ordinary Zen.  Committed to making ordinary, everyday life - extraordinary!

Upon his enlightenment, Buddha was seated in meditation. Zen practice returns to that same seated meditation over and over again. For over 2500 years that meditation has continued from generation to generation. Through our practice we become more productive, clear, compassionate beings, living life fully, no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in. This, in turn, helps us personally, as well as countless others.
