Empty Field – Zen West
The Zen West ~ Empty Field community offers an intimate setting to engage Zen Buddhist practice adapted and expressed within a Western context. Our sangha fosters genuine warm relationships and values practice connected to the earth and responsive to contemporary social and ecological challenges. Zen West meets weekly in Eugene for meditation, dharma teaching, discussion and social connection. We offer introductory classes for beginners and holds two concentrated practice periods each year – one in the fall and another late winter – along with several rural retreats.
Empty Field ~ Zen West is guided by transmitted Soto Zen lay teacher, Debra Seido Martin, from Dharma Rain Zen Center. Seido’s practice is informed by her work in the world as an organic farmer and psychotherapist.
