Experience and Cultivation for Everyone


Jikishoan is a thriving community of people studying and practising Soto Zen Buddhism under the guidance of Zen Master Ekai Korematsu Osho. Newcomers with an interest in Zen meditation and practice in daily life are always welcome.

Zen Master Ekai Korematsu Osho is the Abbot of Jikishoan Zen Buddhist Community and the Director and main teacher of Jikishoan’s Zen and Integrated Buddhist Studies program.
