Practicing as a community

At times we run into difficulties and begin to doubt ourselves or our practice. A community of fellow Zen students gives us strength and support for this path.

Wisdom and compassion are one – when we develop deep insight into the nature of the universe we cultivate wisdom. When we put that wisdom to work and share it with others, it becomes the manifestation of compassion: Love.

Charles River Zen offers you the opportunity to participate in formal Zen practice with others and to become part of an energetic Zen community.

The goal of CRZ is to establish a dedicated physical space that allows for a permanent practice setup, including a daily practice schedule as well as the opportunity for residential training and residents participating in the daily activities.
