Welcome to Cambridge Zen Center! We invite you to discover the practice of Zen meditation.

Cambridge Zen Center is one of the oldest and largest Zen communities in New England, with a rich history and an important place in the development of Buddhism in America.

To help you get started, we offer a free Introduction to Zen Class on Thursday from 6.45 – 7:30 p.m. (arrive by 6:40 p.m.), except on major holidays. You’ll learn the basics of Zen practice in a relaxed, supportive environment. Public Dharma Talks follow the introductory class on most Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.; you can ask questions during these talks.

Boston-area residents can join us for daily practice most mornings or any evening. Often senior students are available after practice to talk about meditation and the direction of practice.
