New Paltz Zen Center
All Are Welcome
NPZC is an open and affirming space. We invite people of different cultures, colors, abilities, ages, identifications, and beliefs who choose to join us. We appreciate and explore our differences in order to build understanding, harmony, and openness for the whole community.
New Paltz Zen Center offers a space for people to learn and practice zen meditation, foster and build community and appreciate our lives together. We offer seating options of cushions, kneeling benches and chairs. Practice involves seated meditation (zazen) and walking meditation (kinhin).
If you would like beginning instruction, please arrive fifteen minutes prior to the start of practice.
