Our Zen community is a friendly and welcoming place to learn about and practice meditation, share Buddhist teachings, and to create relationships that are mindful, caring, and responsive to the unmet needs of others.
“Every step we take is home,” says Dogen. We have a global, local, and residential sangha growing from our central hub of practice at Bread Loaf Mountain Zen Community in Vermont. Whether online or in person, all are welcomed!
The Buddha teaches that spiritual friendship is “the whole of the spiritual life.” Spiritual friendship and service to those who live at the margins of society is the practice heart of Bread Loaf Mountain Zen Community.
