The Indianapolis Zen Center, founded in 1991, offers the practice of Zen Buddhism, in central Indiana.

Our programs include retreats with authentic teachers and weekly practice sessions.The Indianapolis Zen Center is a member of the Kwan Um School of Zen, an international organization founded by Zen Master Seung Sahn, the first Korean Zen Master to live and teach in the West.

Our Guiding Teacher is Lincoln Rhodes, JDPSN, one of Zen Master Seung Sahn's earliest students in the United States.
