Located near the shore of Lake Michigan in the city of Ludington, Great Wave is a small Sangha affiliated with the White Plum Asanga, established by Taizan Maezumi Roshi. We at Great Wave wish to invite you to share in the wisdom and compassion of Zen Buddhism and have prepared this site to help you get started.
Many of us came to Buddhism just the way you are doing now, with some curiosity and perhaps not always the broadest base of knowledge. This is fine. Buddhist practice is a gradual process, one we grow into–and yet it is one in which we often feel like we are “coming home.” Ours is a religion with a profound sense of compassion, wisdom, joy, and humor, a tradition that enables us to endure our storms and appreciate our calmer times too.
If you feel you may be interested in learning about Zen meditation, one of our more experienced members will orient you to our zendo, or Zen meditation hall. Please just give us a call at 231-843-7116 or use our contact form to arrange for an orientation; these generally take place on the last Thursday evening of each month from 5:30 – 6:50 PM. We will do all we can to assist you in your search.
