Cambridge Zen Center exists solely to support everyone - newcomers and seasoned meditators alike - in the practice of Zen Buddhism.

We offer a free Introduction to Zen class on most Thursday evenings from 7 – 7:30 PM (please arrive by 6:55 PM). You’ll learn the basics of Zen meditation in a relaxed, supportive environment. Public Dharma talks follow the introductory class on most Thursdays at 7:30 PM; you can ask questions during these talks.

You can also join us for daily practice most mornings or any evening. If you have questions, senior practitioners are often available after practice to talk about meditation technique and the purpose of practice.

Cambridge Zen Center serves the entire Boston metropolitan area from its convenient location just three blocks from Central Square in the heart of Cambridge.
