The purpose of ‘Alaneo Zendo is to express, make accessible, and embody the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha. Our central value is to express the non-duality of practice and awakening through the practice of Zen and the Sixteen Bodhisattva Precepts. ‘Alaneo Zendo acknowledges and values equally the expression of the practice in formal settings and in daily life.

The ideals are based on the example of the Buddha and guided by the teachings and lineage of the Soto School as conveyed to us by various Buddhist teachers. We offer Zen practice with ongoing meditation sessions, chanting services, dharma talks and sesshins. Please visit our calendar page for a listing of all activities.
