Center's Description
Today's Zen Buddhist Temple building began in 1915 as a Freemason's temple, so as a structure it's come full circle. It's a temple once again. Purchased in 1992 as a rundown Pentecostal church, it took two years of almost-entirely volunteer labor to become the modern building it is. Now the temple provides...
  • Public services and meditation courses
  • A community for fellowship and support
  • A seminary, monastery and training center
Public services are Sundays at 9:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., plus monthly courses and events. Members-only services are Wednesdays at 7 p.m and Sundays at 6 a.m.

We have a full schedule of daily and weekly practice, train students and members, and seasonal meetings for the community.
