Flowing River Sangha
We are an interfaith gathering of people who support one another in the practice of Zen meditation. This practice can deepen the roots of one’s faith tradition or simply open the way to a spiritual life grounded in the reality of the present moment. Zen allows us to flow through life with more equanimity so that we might engage in compassionate action. ALL are welcome!

To this end, the association aims to organize activities and structures including Zen meditation, study, religious services, lectures and other activities that express the Buddha mandala and that do not conflict with applicable legislation. In this way, the association aims to convey the core elements of Zen practice, such as living in not knowing, the study of the self and the development of compassion and love for others.
