Two Arrows Zen

Two Arrows Zen offers continuous Zen practice. Our teachers are transmitted in the Japanese Soto lineage and strongly influenced by the Rinzai tradition. Our training takes place in the modern American West with its emphasis on pragmatic skills and applied practice.

Our programs and events highlight traditional Zen meditation, study, and ritual. We also encourage the cultivation of interpersonal skills for better participation in civic and community life. We supplement sitting practice with training in communication skills, relationship work, and emotional maturation so that insights on the cushion can be actualized in the world.

Practice with Two Arrows Zen means fully awakening to our lives as they are and expressing ourselves with wisdom,compassion, and skillful activity. We offer sustained, whole-hearted practice while encouraging positive contributions to our world.
