While we welcome newcomers to all of our regular Zen Meditation services, once every month [typically the 3rd Sunday] we offer an "Introduction to Zen Meditation Workshop" for those who prefer a more structured introduction to our meditation practice. Zen Meditation Practice permits an understanding and realization of the deeper and more subtle aspects of our lives and points toward a compassionate and more confident way of living.
A collection of audio talks by our late abbot Kongo Langlois, Roshi is now available at Northwestern University Libraries
Since 1949, the Zen Buddhist Temple of Chicago has helped people work to realize their inherent wisdom and compassion through Zen meditation and Dharma teachings. We rely exclusively on your generosity to continue. If your circumstances permit, please donate. We have also recently enrolled in a program with Amazon wherein a portion of your purchase will be donated to us - Amazon Smile -
