The world is full of suffering: we see it in our lives, families, and communities. Is there a spiritual path that can help us heal ourselves so we can help others?

Zen allows us to dissolve negative habits of body and mind so we can live with clarity. 

Join us on this path of wisdom and compassion.

The Korinji Rinzai Zen Community is the circle of students practicing under the guidance of Buddhist teacher and author Meido Moore Roshi. We are a vibrant, friendly community committed to supporting one another on the Zen path. All are welcome to learn with us regardless of faith or background.


Affiliated groups exist in Madison, WI and across North America and Europe. Korinji monastery, located on 17 forested acres in Wisconsin, USA, is our community's headquarters and spiritual center. Aside from being a place of Zen practice the monastery also houses Korinji Shugen Dojo, a center for training in the Mt. Koshikidake tradition of Shugendo.

Membership in our community is open to anyone, and we have numerous resources - including our online video channel - to support your path.

We look forward to meeting and practicing with you!
