Soji Zen Center

How to Stay Connected During the Coronavirus 

As we all continue to navigate the changes of physical distancing, stay-at-home orders, altered routines and considerable loss and uncertainty, Soji Zen Center is offering a three-part video series (click on the images above) to support your practice and presence during the Covid-19 virus outbreak.

Soji Zen Center is currently closed in response to the coronavirus emergency, but click here to learn about our virtual forms of zazen, study group, dokusan and dharma talks. You can also read this letter from Shuzen Roshi and our Board about this critical time.

Soji Zen Center is a contemporary Buddhist center providing instruction in Zen meditation, philosophy and contemplation techniques for training the mind. We are guided by our founding teacher, Jules Shuzen Harris Roshi.

Soji is a place where people can go to slow down, meditate and learn about the healing qualities of the mind. We all agree that training the body through exercise and diet is beneficial, but rarely in Western society do we focus on awakening the healing energies in our brain.

— Jules Shuzen Harris Sensei

The Center is part of the White Plum lineage which brings together elements of Japanese Soto and Rinzai traditions of Zen Buddhism.
