Beginners & Students




In 2007, the Cincinnati Zen Center began practicing at its current location on the corner of West Eighth and Enright Ridge. Since then we have had continual growth in our membership and attendance at regular practice, workshops and retreats, at times exceeding the available space during events. To address the needs of a growing sangha, the CZC Board of Directors has begun working toward the purchase of a building of our own. The new facility would allow larger events, permit overnight accommodations for retreatants, and open the possibility of establishing a residential community engaged in daily practice.

A committee of sangha members has developed a project proposal and estimates the cost to purchase and renovate a building to be $200,000. We would like to complete this project debt-free. Therefore, we are asking the greater sangha community to support our vision of creating a practice space suitable for a growing sangha.

Please consider a donation in support of our capital campaign. All donations are tax deductible, and any amount is appreciated.

  • Sign up to have your pledge automatically withdrawn monthly from your account or charged to your credit card. This is a one-year commitment that can be renewed.
