Currently, we are meeting online every Monday at 8pm EDT. Please send us an email if you would like to join. We sit in silence for 25 minutes and then hold a mindful sharing circle for half an hour. While we look forward to resuming our regular in-person meditation meetings, let us connect and support each other this way for the time being.

Enlightenment and compassion are the essence of the Zen way, two sides of one realization. Zazen, seated meditation, is a practice of letting go and letting be, befriending one's emotions and body, accepting oneself and life. It is a practice of compassion for self and all sentient beings.

-Ama Samy

Loveland Zen is a group of Zen practitioners from Greater Cincinnati, Ohio. We practice in the tradition of Bodhi Sangha, the Zen school founded by Zen master Ama Samy.


We meet for weekly meditation on Monday evenings at Grailville in Loveland and on Saturday mornings at Xavier University in Cincinnati. For details see our calendar. All are welcome.

We will be hosting two Silent Retreats in September, 2021.
