Zen Center of Spokane
We are affiliated with the Diamond Sangha, which blends the Soto and Rinzai traditions.
The Zen Center of Spokane is a lay Zen group that practices in the Zen Buddhist tradition. We practice under the guidance of our teacher Jack Duffy Roshi, a dharma heir of Robert Aitken Roshi.
We are affiliated with the Diamond Sangha, which was co-founded by Aitken Roshi, and which blends the Soto and Rinzai traditions.
Our weekly practice and virtual retreats are open to all. Although our orientation and form is Buddhist, you do not need to be a Buddhist to participate. Practitioners from all traditions are welcome.
You are welcome to practice with us in person at our Spokane zendo, or remotely by Zoom. We ask that in-person participants be fully vaccinated and we encourage the use of masks.
Although meditation is at the heart of our practice, we do not teach general-purpose meditation classes. If that is your interest, please check with any local yoga facility.
If you would like to join us for a sit, or for more information, please contact us using the email form on the Contact Us page.
