The Salt Lake Zen Group welcomes all who wish to explore the path of self-discovery and awakening in a mutually supportive environment.  We offer a regular schedule of meditation and talks, open to the public free of charge (donations gratefully accepted).  Beginners, visitors and experienced practitioners of any religious or non-religious background are invited to participate at all events.

The regular weekly schedule includes Sunday morning talks and informal meetings. The Group is led by Mark Esterman Roshi, a Dharma successor of Dennis Genpo Merzel Roshi, who is the founder of Kanzeon International Sangha and the Big Mind process ( For more information about our schedule, see the Schedule, or our “Contact Us” page.
