Group Practice

In a Buddhist sutra we are told that Ananda, one of the Buddha's disciples, said sangha (community or fellowship or spiritual friendship) was at least half of the spiritual life.  The Buddha replied: "Say not so, Ananda, say not so.  Spiritual friendship is the whole of the spiritual life!" 


Louisville Zen Center sangha practice is also referred to as ‘sittings’, 'formal sittings', 'group meditation', 'group practice', or 'meditation sessions'.  On Sunday evenings, sangha practice is held in the zendo (meditation room) at Unity of Louisville at 757 South Brook Street in Louisville, Kentucky.  On Tuesday and Thursday evenings, practice is held at Heart of Perfect Wisdom Zendo in Louisville's Audubon neighborhood.  Contact the Center for directions


There is no charge for participating in group practice.  Louisville Zen Center operates as much as possible on dana (or giving).  We suggest non-members give $5 ($3 for students and seniors), but any contribution, small or large, will be much appreciated.  No one is EVER turned away for lack of payment


Please also consider volunteering, and if you’d like to make a deeper commitment to Louisville Zen Center, become a member. Membership provides ongoing support for the Center's work even when you can't be there.  Membership and other forms of giving are tax-deductible.
