Zen allows us to dissolve negative habits of body and mind,

to live with clarity and be of service to all beings.

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 conduct frequent  retreats and other events that you are welcome to attend, structured in a progressive way from basic to advanced.

We look forward to meeting and practicing with you!
