Welcome to the Puerto Vallarta Zen Group
We are a group of friends who meet regularly to practice meditation
in the Zen Buddhist style.
We invite you to join us in this practice. We follow the traditional forms
of the Soto school of Zen with a spirit of warmth and inclusion. By
settling the heart and mind in this very moment, we can bring a little
more peace and openness to our lives and our world. Our tradition
emphasizes the daily practice of sitting meditation (zazen) and the
integration of formal practice with daily life.
We have learned that this practice strengthens and supports the
spiritual life of people from many religious backgrounds. We do not seek
converts. Everyone interested in meditation, whether brand new,
experienced in other traditions, or schooled in formal Zen, is welcome to
We meet in Colonia Palmar de Aramara Tuesday and Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm and Sunday mornings at
