Thank you for visiting the website of the Raleigh Zen Group. We are a small Zen Buddhist practice group located near the NCSU campus in Raleigh, North Carolina.
We offer an ongoing schedule of Zen meditation and can also provide instruction in Zen practice for beginners.
The group is not formally affiliated with any other Zen or meditation group but some members have, in the past, practiced for long periods of time at various other centers, including the San Francisco Zen Center, the Tassajara Zen Mountain Center, the Mt. Baldy Zen Center, and the Rochester Zen Center.
We welcome interested newcomers as well as those from any Buddhist tradition who wish to practice with us. We require no formal sectarian commitment. Our emphasis is on sitting and walking meditation, and, as much as possible, integrating the meditation practice into all aspects of everyday life.
