Zen Practice Group


Zen is Buddhist practice, an investigation into the nature of "self," suffering and the resolution of suffering in everyday life.  Dartmouth Zen Practice welcomes all comers, from Dartmouth and from the wider community, regardless of religious affiliation or meditation experience.  Students are encouraged to take leadership roles in the group and to assist in planning an annual Spring seminar, involving teachers from both academic and practice backgrounds.  The group is led by Gendo Allyn Field, founder of the Upper Valley Zen Center and lay ordained monk and teacher (osho) in the Rinzai Zen tradition.


Practice sessions are held in the Tucker Meditation Room, North Fairbanks basement.

  • Wednesday 7:30 to 9 :00 pm
  • Thursdays, 12 noon to 1 pm (sitting practice followed by b.y.o. lunch)

Other events may be planned in the course of the semester depending on group interest and involvement.

Events and practice schedule are also available at the affiliated Upper Valley Zen Center, located at 58 Bridge Street, White River Junction, VT (
