Welcome to EBZ!

We are an Interfaith Zen community located in the Parish House of The Church of the Redeemer in Morristown, New Jersey. 

Our emphasis  is zazen (sitting meditation)  -  a practice that can awaken us to the realization of our essential nature which is not contingent on gender, religion or beliefs. Zazen is the heart of our practice.

If we can’t experience non-thinking, we will not understand what our life truly is. Please realize this for yourself! Just sit.
— Taizan Maezumi

EBZ is a center for lay practice and is open to everyone - we welcome people from all or no religious backgrounds. Whether you have been meditating for years, or just starting to explore, we welcome you to join us on this journey.
