Welcome to College Zen

We are a zen community located in Lancaster City, Pennsylvania.

This home is a starting place where friends on the path may come to meet, meditate, learn mindfulness practices and the koan arts.

We are happy to give individual instruction, and work to create an individualized practice to help awaken to your life.

The lives of many are troubled by unhelpful emotions and many are limited in their ability see clearly beyond the lens of their conditioning.  One hope of this home is to help bring clarity and wisdom to those have this intention.  We can share the wisdom of the Buddha’s teachings framed in a modern vehicle.

This project welcomes the support of all beings.  If you are interested in getting involved please contact us.
