Currently, we are meeting for meditation every Monday at 7:30pm. You can join the meditation in person at Grailville or online.  Please send us an email if you are joining for the first time. For details, see our calendar.

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.
