All Are Welcome...

Dharma Gate Zen Center was created to provide a place to come together, learn more about ourselves and our lives, and to find balance and peace. We are from both Korean and Japanese Zen traditions, yet we focus on contemporary, approachable, applicable forms of  Western Zen practices. We provide classes (meditation, Iaido, refuge recovery), retreats, Zen Buddhist services and holidays and a variety of opportunities to find balance and community. Dharma Gate Zen Center is an Non-Profit (501c3)  Zen Center in Michigan, located in both Troy, Michigan and Saginaw, Michigan.
