Welcome to the Kansas Zen Center, an affiliate of the Kwan Um School of Zen.

Our regular formal practice is free and open to the public. We also offer retreats, public talks, classes, and other programs on a regular basis.

Our main center is at 1423 New York Street, Lawrence KS 66044. In addition we have a branch center in Kansas City, which meets at Unity Temple on the Plaza. Our e-mail is kansaszencenter “at” gmail “dot” com, and you can friend us on Facebook.

The heart of the Kwan Um School of Zen and the Kansas Zen Center is Zen practice. We invite you to practice with us.

Special note We’re having a focused fund-raising campaign to help with the substantial costs of replacing our sewer line this winter. For more details, or to donate, please go to our site on
