Welcome to Ashland Zen Center. 


We practice Soto Zen Buddhism in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi. Our founding teachers Jintei Harold Little Roshi and Etsudo Patty Krahl Roshi brought this practice to the Rogue Valley in 1993.


Zen Buddhism is grounded in the daily practice of zazen and in the activities of everyday life. Maintaining a garden, working, cooking, raising children — these are rich fields for Zen practice.

Discover what Zen Buddhism is by directly experiencing zazen for yourself. Show up and see what happens. People join our sangha from all faith traditions and all walks of life. Everyone is welcome. We sit zazen weekday mornings, Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings. Full Weekly Schedule


Our community is led by Kigetsu Ramana Waymire and Tendo Stacy Waymire. Our daily practice, sesshins, retreats and dharma are open to everyone living in the Rogue Valley and beyond. Ashland Zen Center is a place of spiritual dicovery and refuge for real people living in the real world.


We are located at 740 Tolman Creek Road in Ashland, Oregon.


Vaccination is required for in-person practice.  May all beings live in safety and be free from suffering.
