Ashland Zen Center is 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.


We are a non-profit organization, maintained and supported entirely by donations and volunteers.


Ashland Zen Center is an affiliate center of Branching Streams, a network of dharm a centers in the lineage of Suzuki Roshi, and a member of the Soto Zen Buddhist Association.
