Note: Ashland Zen Center will suspend the regular schedule April 12 - 26 for Practice Period, and be closed on April 27. We will return to our regular temple schedule on April 28.

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 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 dharma centers in the lineage of Suzuki Roshi, and a member of the Soto Zen Buddhist Association.
