Welcome to Ashland Zen Center, a Soto Zen Buddhist temple in the lineage of Suzuki Roshi.
Our temple was founded in 1993 by senseis Jintei Harold Little and Etsudo Patty Krahl.
Ashland Zen Center offers non-residential, temple-based training.
Temple-based training provides the opportunity to practice with teachers, priests and a sangha while fully, meaningfully engaged in work and family life.
One-day sittings, sesshins and extended retreats provide students additional opportunities to deepen practice.
If you are new to Soto Zen, or would like to become familiar with our temple practice before attending a regularly scheduled event, we welcome you to Beginner’s Night, offered the first Wednesday of every month at 7 PM. (Excluding January, July, and December). For more about Beginner's Night, click HERE.
AZC is located at 740 Tolman Creek Road in Ashland, Oregon.
Ashland Zen Center is a non-profit organization, maintained and supported entirely by donations and volunteers.
