Welcome


All are welcome to come visit and join the practice of Karuna Buddhist Sangha. Our Buddhist teaching and practice flows from, but is not limited to, the Soto Zen lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi. The traditional Soto Zen forms of practice are taught and observed here, however, there is no obligation to follow them. One can come, visit and join our practice at whatever level of formality they are comfortable.

All events of Karuna Buddhist Sangha of River Falls are free and open to the public. No self-identification of faith or religious affiliation is required for participation.
