Leading the Midtown Atlanta Zen Sangha is Marcus Joriki Barlow, a novice Zen priest training under Rosemary Bussho Taylor of the Minnesota Zen Center. Our other offerings include Buddhist sewing practice (Nyoho-e) as well as Japanese calligraphy (Shodo). Calligraphy classes are led by Seisen Horino, and a monthly tuition fee is required.
The Midtown Atlanta Zendo is a member of the Soto Zen Buddhist Association. We hold sitting meditation and study every Thursday at noon and every Sunday at 7:00 p.m. We provide orientations prior to service and sitting periods for those new to meditation.
