Welcome to Inside Dharma!

We are a Buddhist based organization which focuses on assisting residents in prisons and ex-convicts. We also serve the community through the Shinzo Zen Meditation Center, which practices in the Soto Zen tradition. All are welcome.

Please click Contact in the site menu at the top of the page if you have any inquiries.

Important Announcement

In an effort to avoid confusion, we are organizing everything under the Inside Dharma name. This will include the Shinzo Sen Meditation Center and the services held at the AtWell center, and will be considered part of Inside Dharma.

We have worked with our social media outlets to ensure that the names and handles match up the Inside Dharma name instead of (strictly) Shinzo Zen Meditation Center. We will still be posting to Twitter and Facebook as normal for anything happening with Shinzo Zen Meditation Center and the AtWell location for both sanghas, but will all be done as Inside Dharma going forward.

This does not affect normal meditation services.

We thank you for your patience while we restructure under the Inside Dharma label and organization. Gassho! ūüôŹ
