Welcome to the Zen Center of Philadelphia

The Zen Center of Philadelphia is affiliated with the Ordinary Mind Zen School and the Two Rivers Zendo. ZCP is meant for ordinary people who wish to learn meditation in the midst of their everyday lives of work, study, and relationship. Through zazen, interview with the teacher, and monthly day-long sittings, you can study with like-minded people to open your awareness and heart. Beginners are welcome. Instruction is given to first-time visitors. The Zen Center of Philadelphia welcomes everyone–no exceptions.
