A Single Thread Zen Contemplatives

Address: Evanston, Illinois   Evanston 60202
Tradition: Mahayana, Order of Hsu Yun
Affiliation: Order of Hsu Yun/ZATMA
Phone: 8473322501
Find on:
Spiritual Director: Yao Xiang Shakya  (Phone: 8473322577)
Notes and Events:

We are a new order rooted in the ancient teachings of Zen. We are inclusive, contemplative and are what we like to call a backyard practice.

After many years of spiritual practice we discovered an inward inclination to live a more contemplative life. Despite living in an urban setting, we live the life of quiet reflection without rule or imposed structure. As we practice we find silence, meditation, solitude, study and work to be the Way to finding and being our true Self.

We maintain a small zendo, look after two dogs and are friendly to our neighbors.

We welcome those who might be inclined to live a contemplative life right in the middle of ordinary circumstances. We offer little in the way of imposed structure or rule but point the way to find the Dharma through essays, good words, books, art, lay and priest ordination and contemplative practices. If you feel drawn to a contemplative life right where you are and might find some connection to others beneficial, please contact us by e-mail.

There are no fees, no membership cards, and no bylaws.

We offer the Dharma.

Newly forming Adhivara House in Southwest Missouri is hoping to establish itself as a retirement hermitage for a small number of male contemplatives/lay monastics who choose to still live and/or work part-time in the secular world. There is no formal program or structure at Adhivara but residents share in the work of landscaping, cooking, house, yard and office work. The Hermitage is meant to be a refuge for serious contemplatives seeking to live cooperatively and support each other in their chosen practice. While primarily Theravada Buddhist and Insight in orientation, contemplatives from all inclusive faith traditions are encouraged to inquire.

Alexandria Open Meditation Group

Address: Alexandria   LA
Tradition: Mahayana, Zen
Phone: Margaret Waring 318-792-5061.
Find on:
Main Contact: Larry White  Email  
Notes and Events:

The Alexandria Open Meditation Group was created in the spring of 2014 to offer the essence of Zen Buddhism to the Alexandria community without Asian rituals and hierarchies traditionally associated with Zen. The group meets at the Yoga Practice Studio, 1205 Texas Ave, Alexandria, Louisiana on Wednesday evenings at 5:15.

Zazen is an ancient meditation which was developed and taught by the person known as the Buddha around 2500 B.C.E. Zazen is the heart of the practice known as Chan in China and refined as Zen in Japan. The word “zazen” is Japanese and means to sit and give one’s entire body and mind to the present moment; to practice being here and now. Erect posture, regular breathing, and softly open eyes are hallmarks of this meditation. It is a universally available practice which does not require any belief or commitment to a teacher or organization. It is single minded sitting in silence without expectation or goal.

Through daily practice of this meditation we can learn to drop the desires and attachments which cause suffering in our lives.  People with deep religious beliefs or none whatsoever can practice this meditation. Sitting in stillness together underscores our common humanity and equality.

Alexandria Open Meditation Group enables interested persons to experience this meditation practice which many of us find to be beneficial in our daily lives.  The Group meets on Wednesday evenings to sit together for thirty minutes.  Discussions or social outings often flow from our group practice which fosters friendships naturally.

Cushions, benches, and chairs are available but please bring your own if you have them.  A contribution of five dollars each

Aloha Sangha

Teacher: Tom Davidson-Marx  
Main Contact: Tom Davidson-Marx  Email  (Phone: 808.393.6342)
Notes and Events:

We meet weekly to practice breath awareness meditation, as was taught to me while I was ordained in a forest tradition in Sri Lanka in the 1980s. This website strives to offer an alternative to many retreat-focused approaches to Buddhist meditation, as it recognizes that a large portion of our society simply cannot afford the expense nor the time involved in undertaking retreats. It presents the point of view that spiritual development is at times more thorough-going when undertaken in our daily lives as they are, and for many of us that means living paycheck to paycheck, or raising kids, or taking care of our aging parents. The general approach we take is that at it's core, Buddhism presents a clear, simple and commonsense spirituality for our challenging times.
