 About Sokuji

Soku means "as it is" or "suchness" in Japanese. This refers to the heart of Zen practice, which is to see things as they are, not only in formal meditation, but in each moment of everyday life.  

Sokuji sangha has been meeting in Bemidji Minnesota since 2002, originally guided by Shoshin Bob Kelly who was ordained in the Soto Zen school.  The sangha meets weekly on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Upper Room of Bemidji's United Methodist Church.  A typical sangha meeting includes seated meditation, sutra reading, and an informal Dharma talk with tea and cookies.

Visitors are always welcome. Come at 6:15 for a brief orientation!

We are obliged to lock the doors at 6:30 pm for security, so be sure to come early!
