Soto Zen Meditation, Practice and Community

Serving Portland’s Westside, including Beaverton, Hillsboro, Aloha and Forest Grove

Bright Way Zen

  • Provides access to the Dharma, particularly the teachings and practices of Soto Zen Buddhism and the practice of Zen Meditation (Zazen), but in a way that is inviting to all regardless of their religious interest or affiliation;
  • Supports the creation of Sangha, a community of practitioners – it helps immensely to practice with others!
  • Provides the opportunity for people to go as deeply into meditation and Zen practice as they want to go, in order that they may awaken to their Buddha (awakened) nature.

The Buddha, Dharma and Sangha are called the “three treasures” of Buddhism.

 Statement of Inclusivity

This Sangha acknowledges that suffering is a human condition which can be made worse because of biases or prejudices for or against any race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, sexual identity, political party, or other belief or position. This Sangha welcomes and affirms all who come here to seek the Way, and who will work toward respectful acceptance of others across our many differences, harmonizing the one and the many.
