Stone Blossom Sangha
A Welcoming Zen & Tibetan Buddhist Group

Welcome to Stone Blossom Sangha

A Welcoming Zen & Tibetan Buddhist Group in North-Central Washington

We are an open and welcoming Buddhist group offering formal practice in Zen & Tibetan traditions...

Stone Blossom Sangha is a warm and inviting place to gather together to practice meditation and learn about the Buddhist dharma (teachings).  The dharma teaches us how to alleviate our own suffering so we can live more peacefully, wisely, and happily, and to walk in balance as we interact with the world we belong to.  Whether you are an experienced practitioner or a beginner just curious about meditation, you will find a kind yet focused group who study and practice together to benefit all beings.
Please join us!

We have practice groups that meet on Wednesdays (see About page for location and practice schedule):

  • Zen Tradition, Morning | 9:30am to 10:30am
    A Rinzai Zen meditation group, which includes tea service meditation, chanting meditation, Dharma Talk, sitting meditation ("zazen"), walking meditation (weather permitting), and an opportunity for open discussion afterward.

  • Zen Tradition, Evening | 5:30pm to 6:30pm
    A Rinzai Zen meditation group that offers tea service meditation, chanting meditation, Dharma Talk, and sitting meditation ("zazen").

  • Tibetan Tradition | 6:40pm to 7:40pm
    A Tibetan Buddhist group rooted in the Vajrayana school of Buddhism. The main practices include Green Tara and Lojong (mind-training).
    Tibetan practitioners are asked not to enter the building until 6:30pm, so as not to disturb the Zen group’s silent meditation period.

A study group is starting October 1st (click here for details).  If interested, please contact Meho Sensei.

Teachings of various kinds and formats recommended by sangha leadership can be found on our
Teachings page.

In Buddhism, there are three gems: Buddha, the awakened one; Dharma, the way of understanding and loving; and Sangha, the community that lives in harmony and awareness. The three are interrelated, and at times it is hard to distinguish one from another. In everyone there is the capacity to wake up, to understand, and to love. So in ourselves we find Buddha, and we also find Dharma and Sangha.
