The Athens Zen Group is an unaffiliated, independent community of dedicated lay Zen practitioners. Our primary form is zazen, the seated meditation that reveals the true self.

We offer opportunities for zazen, chanting, and Dharma inquiry and discussion in a supportive and encouraging environment to anyone with a sincere desire for self-realization.

Through this site, we offer information, teachings, and ways of connecting with Zen practice in Athens, Georgia.

We welcome everyone, regardless of faith or philosophical persuasion, to join us.
