We offer teachings and practice in the Sanbo Kyodan style which originated from the Harada-Yasutani School of Zen Buddhism as it flows through the Maria Kannon Zen Center.  Emphasis is given to the value of practice in daily  life. Sitting meditation is offered in conjunction with the Unitarian Universalist  Congregation of Salem.

 In the Zen tradition, it is said that to truly be in the mountains -
 is a flower opening in the world.

Please join us in exploring the most intimate relationship possible...that of truly knowing ourselves, forgetting ourselves and being awakened by the ten thousand things!
