We are a Western Buddhist sangha growing out of Chan, Zen and Nikaya Buddhism. Our focus is to bring an authentic Buddhist practice in the West without abandoning the important influences that have been added to it as it encountered multiple cultures across the world, including our own emphasis on Western Pragmatism.

We offer training and practice in various Buddhist meditation techniques as well as community celebrations such as weddings, funerals, celebrations of new children, etc. to all people in Central Ohio. We have a special mission to the GLBT community.
