Join Us in the Dirt Zendo or Cloud Zendo!

We have two Zendos (meditation/practice spaces) but one Sangha.

Naturally, the experience of Sangha is different if you participate only/primarily in one of the Zendos, but we aim for you participation to be connecting and meaningful wherever you are.

  • The Dirt Zendo is our physical Zendo space. The word “dirt” speaks to the gritty and tangible reality of being together in-the-flesh
  • The Cloud Zendo is our virtual Zendo space. Clouds are beautiful, and the word speaks to the expansive, permeable, and ethereal nature of the virtual space.


Bright Way Zen offers the treasure of Sangha both in the Dirt Zendo (in 3D) and the Cloud Zendo (online).

  • Half of our pledging, committed members are now from outside of Oregon – we have members from all over the US, and in Canada, Brazil, the UK, and Sweden.
  • Two of our seven board members are on the east coast.
  • At our hybrid meetings, there are often more participants online than in the physical Zendo
