The Rinzai Zen Community
(RZC) is an international association of practitioners following the way of Zen Buddhism. Our members come together to support one another along this transforming path of wisdom and compassion. You are very welcome to join us.
RZC practice groups currently exist in North America and Europe. Our community is anchored by two main centers in the United States: Daiyuzenji, an urban temple in Chicago, and Korinji, a rural monastery on 17 forested acres near Madison, Wisconsin.
Beginners are welcome at our centers and groups and are given basic meditation instruction. Those interested in committing to formal practice under the guidance of a Roshi, or Zen master, have the opportunity to do so. Intensive meditation retreats (sesshin) and other events are scheduled throughout the year.
Through this site you may
become an RZC member, join our
mailing list and connect with one of our
practice groups. You'll also find information here on our training, teachers and events.
We welcome your interest and inquiries!
