Founded in 1999, Delaware Valley Zen Center (DVZC) offers to the community an environment for Zen practice. Our weekly practice includes chanting, sitting meditation and walking meditation. We offer meditation instruction on the first Tuesday of the month, and Zen meditation retreats once a quarter. DVZC is one of more than sixty centers and groups worldwide affiliated with the Kwan Um School of Zen, an international organization founded by Zen Master Seung Sahn.
Our guiding teacher is José Ramírez, JDPSN, who received Inka in April 2009.
The Delaware Valley Zen Center (DVZC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit religious corporation of the State of Delaware. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. DVZC is supported, administered and maintained by its members.
Today the DVZC Sangha is an active community that provides a place of practice and instruction in Zen Buddhism, under the guidance of José Ramírez, JDPSN.
