Sedona Zen Center (SZC) is a Zen practice center located in the Village of Oak Creek in beautiful Sedona, Arizona. We are an affiliate of Prajna Zendo in Lamy, New Mexico, and practice in the White Plum lineage of Taizan Maezumi Roshi, honoring both the Soto and Rinzai schools of Zen. We offer meditation instruction, multiple meditation sessions per week, opportunities to meet privately with the teacher, Sunday service, and weekly talks on Zen practice.
There are no dues or fees for practicing at SZC. We welcome donations but do not require them. We welcome beginning and advanced Zen students, or anyone interested in the practice, to join us.
“I encourage you. Please enjoy this wonderful life together. Appreciate the world as just this! There is nothing extra. Genuinely appreciate your life as the most precious treasure and take good care of it.” — Taizan Maezumi Roshi
“If you are unable to find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?”
