Welcome to Yorktown ZEn

Join us in creating a community of Zen practitioners in Northern Westchester and Putnam County NY.

Due to the ongoing Corona Virus situation, we will be holding “virtual Zazenkai” every Tuesday and Thursday at 8pm.
We will also hold our normal Saturday program via Zoom at 9am.

(We hope to be back in person by September 2021)
