Reclaiming the World as Sacred

Our Mission:

Ancient Oaks Zen provides a safe, nurturant and welcoming environment for personal and spiritual development. Our community grows through friendship and offers caring support for each members’ engagement in the world. We share Zen as a way of living that reclaims the world as sacred and embraces it. We offer onsite and online times for group Zen practice, individual private guidance, classes, workshops, retreats, liturgy, and ceremonies. Students who wish can take initiation into Zen Buddhism and the Zen Garland Order. Advanced students can choose to ordain as Zen priests and enter our Teacher Training Track. Ancient Oaks is part of the International Zen Garland Order, founded in 2012 by Roshi Paul Genki Kahn and Roshi Monika Genmitsu Kahn.
