We practice Zen Buddhism as a supportive community, open to all.
Our vision is to end suffering by continuously raising
the heart of wisdom and compassion.
There are so many ways to start your practice at Great Plains Zen Center. From workshops to courses and retreats to serving the community, you are sure to find your opening to a tradition that will transform your understanding of yourself and the world.
Great Plains Zen Center has locations and affiliate sites in Wisconsin and Illinois.
We understand that when you’re starting out on the Zen path, you are likely to have a lot of questions. At GPZC we offer support each step of the way.
Great Plains Zen Center is committed to serving all through education, advocacy, and action in partnership with community organizations.
Great Plains Zen Center is dependent upon the donations of its students.
