Welcome …

Welcome to the Zen Center of Portland.

Everyone is invited to come and explore Zen practice. Feel free to call before you come, or just show up. Orientation can be provided when you arrive, and/or beginning meditation instruction, or, you can join the meditation session if you feel ready for that. We have many cushions and chairs that are available to everyone.

Please don’t wear revealing clothing, or clothing with pictures or large logos on them. Please don’t wear hats in the meditation hall.

Private, one on one, Zen practice guidance is available with our teacher, Larry Christensen. If you would like to have private instruction with Larry, please ask someone how to do that.
