New and Noteworthy at Seattle Soto Zen


Join Us in Practice

The practice of Soto Zen calls us to engage with life, manifesting our true nature in moment-to-moment activity that benefits all beings, including ourselves. This practice brings a joyful openness to whatever arises in our lives.

We follow the forms of Soto Zen with a spirit of warmth and inclusion in the tradition of Suzuki Roshi, founder of the San Francisco Zen Center. Anyone interested in meditation is welcome, whether new or experienced. 
We are an affiliate of Everyday Zen Foundation, led by Zoketsu Norman Fischer, former Abbot of San Francisco Zen Center, and of Clouds in Water Zen Center, led by Byakuren Judith Ragir, long time student of Katagiri Roshi.

Our Sangha is led by Eko Jeff Kelley, a priest and fully transmitted teacher in the Dainin Katagiri Roshi lineage.
