​​Other Activities


The Zen Center maintains a full schedule of sittings (zazen), talks, extended sittings, Buddhist holiday celebrations, and other special events in various locations and online. See our calendar for a current schedule.​​

Public Talks

A representative from Louisville Zen Center is available to give a public talk on Zen Buddhism, meditation and mindfulness, or to conduct the Introduction to Zen Meditation workshop at your school, religious institution, club, work place, etc. ​

Residential Zen Training

​Louisville Zen Center sangha may participate in residential training at Rochester Zen Center (RZC). Under the guidance of RZC teachers and their senior students, residential training is an opportunity to immerse oneself in the disciplined atmosphere of semi-monastic Zen training - which includes daily meditation sessions, group and individual instructions and other guidance, Zen talks, chanting, and work practice - for a shorter or longer period of time.  ​


​Louisville Zen Center operates as much as possible on the Buddhist principle of dana (or giving).  Volunteering is a great way to contribute to the functioning of the Center, refine one's meditation practice, and feel more connected to the sangha (community).
