The Cleveland Zazen Group, has been meeting together for over 30 years. We are located in Cleveland Heights and follow traditions established at the Rochester Zen Center by Roshi Phillip Kapleau and his Dharma-successor, Roshi Bodhin Kjolhede. Regular sittings (meditation) are every Tuesday evening from 7:30-8:45 p.m.


We also meet every Sunday morning at 9 a.m. for zazen (sitting meditation) followed by a recorded teisho (sermon or dharma talk) by Roshi Bodhin Kjolhede of the Rochester Zen Center or other teachers in similar lineages. Twice a month on Sundays...from 11 to noon...we have brunch together.

Periodically there are all-day sittings and Introductory Workshops. Introduction to Zen meditation practice can be arranged for interested individuals and groups.

There are no accidents! if you have come to this website, you have questions about your life, about pain and suffering, about meaning, peace, or your own personhood. You may have done some reading on Zen, on Buddhism, or on meditation. But, as the old masters have said, "Painted cakes do not satisfy hunger."
