Akazienzendo is a place to meditate and gather.

Zazen is a silent, open meditation in the middle of our experience. In this process we increasingly come into harmony with ourselves, others, and our surroundings.

Akazienzendo offers a contemporary, urban approach to Zen practice, without neglecting the depth and insight of traditional Buddhist spirituality.
