Center's Description
The Cedar Rapids Zen Center was founded in January 2000 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Our goal is to promote the practice of Zen Buddhism in the Soto-Zen tradition by providing opportunities for Zen meditation, spiritual practice, religious study and community fellowship. We follow the teachings of the historical Buddha as they have been handed down from India through China and Japan to the United States.

We offer morning and evening zazen (sitting meditation), as outlined in our daily schedule. We also host frequent all-day sittings, sesshins (three-day silent sittings), and introductory classes on a recurring basis; see the calendar of events for details. Anyone is welcome to practice or study at the Cedar Rapids Zen Center. Diversity of age, race, gender, abilities, sexual orientation, and religious faith enhances our sangha (community).
