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 join us.

We meet in Colonia Palmar de Aramara Tuesday and Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm and Sunday mornings at 10:30 am. The address is Mar Caribe #480 at the corner of Océano Índico, one block from the CMQ pharmacy. For a map, click here.

Meditation instruction and orientation is available for new students. Please call or write to make an appointment. You are also welcome to "just show up" any Tuesday or Wednesday evening or Sunday morning.

We welcome everyone without regard to race, colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, or any other form of human diversity.
